Which picture shows that the cat is in front of the dog?

There are two characters in this question, a cat and a dog. And in the pictures underneath the question, we can see that they’re in different positions. If we read the question, we can see we’re being asked to find the picture where the cat is in front of the dog. Another way to think of the words “in front of” is ahead of or further forward than. We want to find the picture where the cat is ahead of the dog or a little bit further forward than the dog.

Now, when we’re asked a question like this, it’s really important that we read the question carefully. It asks us to find a picture where the cat is in front of the dog. Now, if those words were the other way around, we’d be looking for a completely different picture where the dog was in front of the cat. So it’s very important that we read the question carefully and understand what it’s asking us. We need to find where the cat is compared to the dog.

Let’s look at our first picture. Here’s the cat. Now, where is it compared to the dog? It’s next to the dog. We could say the cat is beside the dog. It’s not in front of the dog. We’d better look at our second picture. Here’s the cat. Where is it compared to the dog? Well, we can see that the cat is further forward than the dog; it’s ahead of the dog. It looks like this is our picture. The cat is in front of the dog. And if we check our final picture, we can see that we were right. In this picture, the cat is behind the dog. The picture we’re looking for is the one where the cat is ahead of or further forward than the dog. This picture shows that the cat is in front of the dog.
