Hi shokan, for a staggered brick type pattern maybe something like this:

Start by drawing one rectangle:

Select it and run Transform > Array > Dir to replicate it along a horizontal direction, to get this:

Now select that row and make a copy of it above it, staggering it a bit to the side. To make the copy either hold down Ctrl and drag on them, or use the Transform > Copy command. That makes this:

Now select those 2 rows and run Transform > Array > Dir again to replicate both of those rows along the vertical direction, which makes your pattern:

Hope this helps!
