cool, for me the A is the more logical
first and third row the symbols moves one position to the right and the last to right go to the left, like a cycle.
in the second row each symbol goes left one position and the last to the left go to the right one position.

I believe the answer is A. The top and bottom rows cycle forward, while the middle row cycles backward. Since there are only three objects in each row, the fourth cycle would bring everything back to the original position.

I think it is ‘a’. The top and bottom lines shift one step right for every box, and the middle shifts one to the left.

a

top line moves 1-step horizontally to the right
middle line moves 1-step horizontally to the left
bottom line moves 1-step horizontally to the right

It’s A (first and last columns move to the right and the second one to the left).

The top line of circles moves one space to the right every box
the center line moves one space to the left every box
the bottom line moves one space to the right every box.

For every line there is a +,X and -. there are no multiples per line, which eliminates that variable.

In every line, there is always a yellow, red and orange.

This leaves only the horizontal movement of the symbols within the circles.

In every *horizontal* line there is always a yellow, red and orange circle.

For every *horizonal* line there is a +, X, and -.

I think the next figure is a).

Top line symbols shift 1 space right between each picture.
Middle line symbols shift 1 space left between each picture.
Bottom line symbols shift 1 space right between each picture.

The way they shift doesn’t really matter considering that since there is 3 pictures per line and we are at the 4th one, they come back to original position, but given that they could have gone in some other order, it is important to understand the pattern.

Anyways, long explanation for such a simple answer.

easy, ‘a’

19. abcbcdcdef | Profile

it completes a cycle, so it starts back at ‘a’ again
