ONE [Easy] How many squares of any size can you find in this figure? To get you started, one square in the figure has been shaded green.

TWO [Challenging] How many triangles of any size are in this figure? One triangle has been shaded blue.

THREE [Difficult] How many trapezoids are in this figure? A trapezoid has four sides, only two of which are parallel. One trapezoid here is shaded purple. The others must have the same proportions as the shaded one but may be any size and in any orientation. Mirror images are allowed.
