A fruit seller sorted the following fruits by colour. Which sorting is correct?
The question tells us that the fruit seller sorted according to colour. We have to work out which of the sorting is correct. In other words, did the fruit seller correctly sort by colour? Let’s look more closely at how the fruit seller sorted the fruits in the first group. The fruits in the first row are all correctly sorted by colour, a red apple, a red tomato, and some red cherries. But the fruits in the second and the third row have not been correctly sorted by colour.
In the second row, there’s a yellow lemon, a green apple, and a yellow banana. And in the third row, there’s a green kiwi, a yellow pear, and a green mango. Two different colours, yellow and green.
Let’s see if the fruits in the second group have been sorted correctly by colour. We can see that the fruits in the first row are all the same colour. They’re all red, a red apple, tomato, and some cherries. The fruits in the second row are all yellow, and the fruits in the third row are all green. So the fruit seller sorted the fruits correctly in this picture. All of the fruits in the first row are red. In the second row, all of the fruits are yellow. And in the third row, all of the fruits are green.
