We already know the rule for the pattern of letters $ \mathrm{L}, \mathrm{C} $ and $ \mathrm{F} $. Some of the letters from Q.1 (given above) give us the same rule as that given by L. Which are these? Why does this happen?

To do:

We have to find the rule that is given by L from among the letters given in Q.1.


A pattern of letter \( T \) as 

From the figure, we observe that two matchsticks are required to make the letter T.

Therefore, the required pattern is $2n$.

Among the letters given in Q.1, $T$ and $V$ are the letters which require two matchsticks.

This happens because the number of sticks required in the formation of the letters L, T and V is the same.
