You just need to train your brain to see it, and that takes practice (unless you are one of those people who can just see things like this without having to think about it deeply).

Download these flashcards and cut them out to help you quickly see sequence. These flashcards test whether couples are in sequence, but this learning can be applied to testing whether boys or girls are in or out of sequence.
