Problems on Paper Cutting
A set of three figures showing the manner in which a piece of paper has been folded is given. In each of the first two figures, a dotted line together with an arrow on it has been given. The dotted line is the reference line along which the paper has to be folded and the arrow indicates the direction of the fold. In the third figure (C), there are marks showing the position and the nature of the cut made in the folded sheet. The student has to select one of the figures from the set of four answer figures (1, 2, 3, and 4) which would most closely resemble the pattern appearing on the paper when unfolded.
Evidently, the designs of the cut will appear on each one of the folds made in the paper.
The shape of the paper may be square, hexagonal, rectangular, triangular or circular in shape.
Consider the following three figures, marked A, B and C showing the one-fold in A, another fold in B and cut in C. From the answer figures (1), (2), (3) and (4) choose the correct one showing the unfolded position of C.
