Question of the Day – Crack the DAT

Question of the Day

This Top-Front-End question requires identifying the missing top view. The solid lines represents edges that can be seen from that view, whereas the dashed lines represent hidden edges that are not visible from the given perspective. Since the C shape in the front view curves to the right, the right interior edge cannot be seen from the top and should be represented by a dashed line. In contrast, the left interior edge is visible from the top so should be a solid line. Only choice C shows the correct pattern of solid line to the left of center and dashed line to the right of center, so C is correct.
