The problem with #2 is the solution they give is wrong.

Smerk the cutest dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In Western Australi

Little Accipiter loved that girl enough
He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.

Oh?  It seemed to make 3 squares or rectangles and four triangles to me…. blank stare  (Though I think their next to last line was a bit off kilter…)


SPOILER:
.
.
One big box, two smaller rectangles; Two large triangles (Large box bi-sected) two smaller triangles (To either side of midline, middle…)

No
The puzzle specifically asks for three squares/rectangles
not three four sided shapes.

They show one square and two four sided shapes as their solution.

The central vertical line divides the square into two rectangles.
