Which shape is not cut into quarters?

We’re shown three different shapes, a circle and two rectangles. Each of these shapes have been cut into pieces. Each shape has been cut into four pieces. When we cut a shape into four equal pieces, we call each piece a quarter. We can see that the circle has been cut into four equal parts. We can call each of these parts quarters. The pink rectangle has been split into four parts. But are the parts equal? Are they the same size? No, they are not.

The green rectangle has also been split into four parts. And each part is equal. So the green rectangle has been cut into quarters. So now, we can say that the orange circle has been cut into quarters. And the green rectangle has been cut into quarters. The shape which has not been cut into quarters is the pink rectangle. This shape has been cut into four parts. But the parts are not equal. This shape has not been cut into quarters.
