Determine the Figures

Given a board with figures and true or false statements about them, determine the figures.
A figure has a shape (triangle, square, pentagon), a color (yellow, orange, green), a name (, , , …), and a size (small, medium, large).
To get a problem where the statements are independent, the number of statements should be near the number of figures.
(Note that "iff" means "if and only if".)
