Riddle 9

When thinking about the next Riddle to be posted on Psikita, I was reminded to a simple brain teaser gave to me when I was still a kid. To be honest, I solved this riddle that time, but it took a really long time. I hope you could solved this riddle too, but in a shorter time than mine. ๐Ÿ™‚

As you can see in the picture above, there are 18 matches arranged to shape 6 equal squares.

Is it possible to remove only 2 matches and remain 4 equal squares?

If you said that it is possible, which 2 matches should be removed from the arrangement?

      only 2 matches are allowed to be removed. If this is your answer, it means you have remove 6 matches in total. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Nice Try …
