Arcs

An optical illusion is a visually perceived image that is deceptive or misleading.

Which arc comes from the largest circle? If you cover the left and right edges you will see that they are all the same size. This is because the size of objects is sometimes distorted based on the context in which they are seen.

To "get it", you will need something you can see through to trace the lines with. Or just get a piece of regular paper, hold it below the bottom line and draw just below the bottom curve the same exact distance. A little tricky.

Then measure your new bottom line against the top 2 lines the same way. They are the same curve. Which means if you continued all the lines into a complete circle, the circles would turn out the same size.
HARD to BELIEVE!
What fools you is the big space between the top 2 lines. It seems to be squeezing down. But doesn't stay that way.

Don't get it? Don't be sad, it's simple. Cover the sides of the smallest arc with two pieces of paper. Now all you see is the smallest arc. But wait! The small arc is in all three arcs! All the circles are the same size because they all have the same arc.
