About This Quiz

When we were younger, there were certain things we had to learn as part of our education, One of those very important things was shapes. We weren't told what they were or why they existed, but we had to learn how to identify them. We started out small, with everyday things like circles, squares, and even stars, Then, as we grew older, more were added to the mix. We needed to know what right angle triangles, trapezoids, parallelograms and rhombuses were, for subjects like technical drawing, physics and, of course, mathematics. 

But now that we're older, most of us don't even think about those shapes anymore. In fact, a lot of us have reverted back to the original ones we learned when we were young. We don't say the Earth is spherical, we say it's circular or round. But if you want to pass this quiz, you need to come correct. You'll need to know a whole lot more than circles to even get a quarter of the way into this quiz. Are you ready to identify some shapes for us? 

It's not as easy as you think, but if you pass, we'll count you as a legend. Are you ready to prove to us and everyone else that you know your shapes?
