    I was think­ing between a and g, but I think a pen­ny has the longer curve on top, so I’m going with G, final answer 😛

    I guess its “g”

    The image looks cor­rects, but I can not read the facts

  9. Mark says:

    I don’t think the point is whether or not this exer­cise is “hard.” Hard is a rel­a­tive term when deal­ing with mem­o­ry, in my hum­ble opin­ion. For exam­ple, one who makes his or her liv­ing mak­ing pen­nies may scoff at any­one who could not rec­og­nize the cor­rect pen­ny. How­ev­er, the same indi­vid­ual may feel quite out of his or her ele­ment when asked how many red stripes are on the red and white striped hat of Dr. Seuss’s char­ac­ter “The Cat in the Hat” with­out look­ing. How­ev­er, many chil­dren could quick­ly tell you that the answer is three. What’s rel­e­vant to one per­son may not be all that impor­tant to anoth­er per­son. Thank good­ness we don’t remem­ber every sin­gle detail of every item we’ve seen in our lives. We’d go stark rav­ing mad!
