This is an example of a possible correct answer:

LET ME EXPLAIN HOW TO GENERATE A FRACTAL. BEGIN WITH A STRAIGHT LINE------------------ . THIS LINE IS 90 M LONG. NOW DIVIDE THIS LINE INTO 3 EQUAL PARTS____ ____ ____ EACH LENGTH WOULD BE 90/30=30 M. NOW USE THIS 90/30 TO CONSTRUCT WHAT WE CALL A GENERATOR. WE USE THIS GENERATOR FOUR TIMES , THEN FIVE TIMES, THEN SIX TIMES , INFINITE TIMES . THE PATTERN YOU HAVE GENERATED KEEPS REPEATING ITSELF OVER AND OVER AGAIN, INFINITELY SMALLER AND SMALLER.
