Identify Simple and Compound Time Signatures

  • Required Problems: 20
  • Demo version: Your score will not be saved
  • Score 90% or better for full points
  • Time Limit: 5 Minutes

For each time signature you see, identify its division (whether it is simple or compound), and identify its number of beats (either duple, triple, or quadruple). Remember a "C" (common time) represents 4/4, and a "C" with a slash through it (cut time) is 2/2.

*If the time limit is stressful, try Practice Mode.
