Well, that requires one to know wth are the Fibonacci numbers or be able to figure out they follow whatever sequence they do, which is much more likely if someone has been explained the Fibonacci numbers, or at least done math beyond "one, two, many". That's environmental without even needing to be "training to beat the test".
