To help you remember what is a tetrad scheme, imagine a square.

When you join the shape of 2 contrasting colours on the colour wheel you make a square.

The word tetrad is also used in the metric system defining land areas.  A 2km x 2km square is called a tetrad.

A tetrad is also used in microbiology to define clusters of four cocci bacteria, which are shown as 4 circles arranged in a square.
