 1.  
Identify a pair of polygons that is used for the tessellation.

a.
octagons and rectangles
b.
squares and rectangles
c.
octagons and squares
d.
pentagons and hexagons


Solution:

The given tessellation is formed by octagons and squares.


Correct answer : (3)
 2.  
Which figure is used for the tessellation?

a.
Figure 2
b.
Figure 3
c.
Figure 4
d.
Figure 1


Solution:

The given tessellation is formed by joining the scalene triangles.
