  • See the above picture and draw seven parallel lines running through both the triangles. Picture 3 can be a nice example of an optical illusion as the lines are looking like they are curved a little where they cut through the common arm of the two triangles. But, they are actually straight lines, you may check with your ruler to be sure.
