Weird Revision Question

Good Morning all,

My apologies if this has been asked already.

I'm studying the HPL book for my CHUF exam this Friday and I have come across a strange question in revision test 5 that neither myself nor my instructor could figure out. It's question 11 talking about perspective. None of the answers make sense and the paragraph in the chapter contradicts the answer in the back of the book.

I'm hoping I can get this cleared up before Friday.

Thank you everyone,
Kobie

Any point that lines up with the horizon is at the same height as the observer. See the diagram on the top of page 43. In the left hand frame, the scene is being viewed from the same height as the top of the power poles. In the centre panel, the scene is being viewed from the same height as the top of the small tree.

That rule doesn't apply to objects in flight. In the right hand panel, aeroplane B could be further away, but it also could be a small model aeroplane that is closer to you.
