EXAMPLES FROM THE WEB FOR QUATERNARIES

In Diagram II we have arranged at opposite points the primaries 1, the secondaries 2, the tertiaries 3, the quaternaries 4.

It is easy to understand the composition of secondaries, but it is not so easy to know the tertiaries and quaternaries.

The second circle is composed of the secondaries; the third circle, the tertiaries, and the outer circle, the quaternaries.
