Hi ! this is an odd question.   Maybe you are just supposed to add up the shapes?  So 2 squares + 3 squares = 5 squares in all.   Then  also 1 circle + 3 circles = 4 circles in all.

thanks so much i was here going crazy and it is odd question but what about the triangle?

I think the triangles are just put there for background. Similar as when in word problems in math you are always given extra unneeded information. In that type of problem half the challenge is to rule out unnecessary information.  So glad I helped you!
