# QUIZ! How many of the Linear B characters at Level 1are derived from the basic geometric forms?

QUIZ!  How many of the Linear B characters at Level 1are derived from the basic geometric forms? Be careful!  Even at Level 1, some of the Linear B characters make use of geometric forms which are NOT derived from the basic 3, but from more complex derivations of them. Let me make it a bit easier for you.  You should take into consideration ONLY the straight line and the circle to calculate the number of characters derived, not the dot, since NONE of the characters at Linear B Level 1 use it.

OK, here is your quiz question (click to enlarge):

Just leave your result in a comment, and I will tell you if you are right.

Good luck!

1. I can see at least 3 that derive from Geometry, the circle beside the right angle, the oval with a cross inside it and a similar cross 90 o angle…. but there may be more. C. Wolfe
