Question: What does the graph of a sound wave of a human heart, as shown in this image, have to do with a fractal pattern?
  1. The graph is so similar to a fractal pattern that medical researchers can use it to check a heart's health.
  2. The graph, like a fractal pattern, rotates around an axis and therefore always looks the same when it spins.
  3. The graph is so different from a fractal pattern that it have no scientific value.
  4. Once the graph or a fractal pattern is magnified, the repetition of geometric shapes can no longer be seen.
