Below there is a small sequence. What should we put in the 6th box?



2 Answers 2


I think this is the completed sequence:

the same image from the question, with the sixth box remaining empty

Let's take a look at the full picture:

six music notes, increasing in length from a 32nd note on the left to a whole note on the right

Thus, the images in the boxes represent

the stems of the notes, which the whole note (or semibreve) does not have.

    $\begingroup$ That was quick! Correct. Initially I had rotated every box by 90 degrees, but thought that would be maybe too farfetchted... and too hard. $\endgroup$

Is it the same as the third picture? I was thinking that 4 and 5 were where the pattern "rebounds" and doubles back on itself and the 6th is the first in the other direction. Perhaps it is even mirrored on a vertical line between 4 and 5.
