This one is the easiest puzzle ever

1st square: 3 arrows, 3 circle
2nd square: 4, 2 circles
3rd: 3, 3 circles
4th:4, 2 circles
5th:3, 3 circles

So the sixth is obivously the image #2, because it’s the only with with four arrows and 2 circles.

The pattern is 3 arrows, 4 arrows, 3 arrows, 4 arrows, 3 arrows, and 2 has 4 arrows and the shapes stay the same.

Right, the pettern, indeed a nice way to get the answer from the sheet, I bet less people would have gotten the final answer if the answer weren’t given.

Meaning that you should find how the final figure looks.

I got this one though, it’s definitely 2.

(Bottom changes, top changes, second from bottom changes, second from top changes, and so on)

Anybody have thoughts on this?

Couldn’t the answer possibly be five also? Think of it this way: from A to B, the bottom pin turns into an arrow, from B to C, the arrow turns into a pin, from C to D the fourth arrow turns into a pin. Since you’ve already changed to bottom insignia you leave it alone. Continue this pattern, working your way to the middle until you have nothing else to change and you’re answer would be five. Couldn’t that work?

From B to C I meant the top arrow.

Apparently I’m way behind the times here, but I think that 5 might be a viable option as well. As long as you presume that after 5 iterations the symbol switches from an arrow to a dot or vice versa.

I would discount this, however it is evident that in none of the rows does a symbol switch from arrow to dot more than once (if at all, hence 5 iterations being the magic number), which would be a possibility were option 2 the proper pattern.

eg. Set 6 would be as follows:

dot
dot
dot
arrow
arrow
dot

Of course, it’s probably just coincidence, or maybe I’m just crazy. There might even be another pattern/option that can complete the series.

cheers,

P.S.

I realize that Kyle also thinks it’s 5, but I’m not sure I understand his reasoning, so I’m putting in my own. :P
