I would say (A) since every row and column has one 2-pronged, 3-pronged, and one 4-pronged figure.

2. TonyTKL | Profile

There are three of each pattern, so (a).

3. Mashplum | PUZZLE MASTER | Profile

(a)
each row and column needs a 2, 3, and 4 spoked figure.

For simplicity I will go with the A, because it seems that each square moves to the left and the one at the botton left goes back to the right also in each row you have 1 figure with 4 lines, one with 3 lines and one with 2 lines, each line separated by the big point, but the rotating pattern is somehow confusing to me, if you notice the figure with 2 lines in te first row, firt it moves 90 degrees then 45 degrees (clockwise) but the one with 3 lines moves first 180 degrees, then it should be 90 degrees right, maybe the one with 3 lines is an ascending pattern 90 degrees first then 180 degrees that could be, cool.

I am going for (a)
It appears that each row and column shapes whose spokes add up to 9, or alternatively are comprised of one 4 spoke shape, one 3 spoke shape and one 2 spoke shape.
(a) would fit the bill.

from looking at the patterns horizontally and vertically (counting the spokes) – i get that (a) is the missing peace

you get 4,3,2; 3,2,4;2,4,? for both, so what’s missing is a 3, hence (a)

the first answer that comes to mind is (a), but that seems too obvious…

Each serie goes in a pattern that is followed diagonally (up and right ou down and left). The only one with the same figure (3 bars) is a.

We could say the cross is still and the bar is spinning but the bar isn’t spinning at the same rate if we follow the pattern. There must be another pattern but the only logical answer is a because it’s the only figure with 3 bars.

I took the easy approach. If one selects “a”, then every row, column and diagonal save one contains one 2 armed figure, one with three arms and one with four arms. The SW to NE diagonal has three two-armed objects which is also a form of symmetry.

Neither item b nor c seems to be part of any pattern or sequence I can detect. Item d is a rotated version of the 4 armed figures that appear in the diagram, but I don’t see a pattern there either.

Can it be this easy?

(a) because each row and column needs a 2 3 and 4

11. RK | Founder | Profile

very good, (a) is correct.

12. irmisa | Profile

a is correct but why is so eazy?

13. changwang0 | Profile

This one is really easy, but the real answer is shak’s. It’s obvious it’s (a), because they all have one of each, but the thinking behind the answer is more important. Noticing the pattern is the actual thinking part. I noticed it right away too.

14. Tsopi | Profile

a(each vertical and horizontal row has a 4 line shape , a three line shape and a 2 line shape)

15. ibryamo | Profile

in the large square there is (3) shapes for every shape , then we need faor ( a) to complete it
