    Answer 5


    Bent tine moves 2, 1,3,1


    The next number of moves in the series is 4, which puts the bent tine at the bottom of the wheel.

    ill go with 5, assuming the order is in clockwise direction the extra little line moves 2,1,3,1, then im just gonna asume it goes 4,1,5,1,6,1, etc.

    5?


  4. Jay | Guest

    5…

    5? Rotating clockwise, skip 1, skip 0, skip 2, skip 0… skip 3


  6. Joe | Guest

    First it moves twice, then once, then three times, then once, so then it’ll move 4 times, so 5 is the answer.

    5?… skip 1 then 1 skip 2 then 1 skip 3?

    5

    5. The difference in space is 2, 1, 3, 1, and 4 seems to follow.

    #5


    The pattern is:


    2 units CW
    1 unit CW
    3 units CW
    1 unit CW


    The next logical step is 4 units CW, which is #5

    my guess is answer #4. the end piece is always pointing in the same direction. it can’t stop on the horizontal bar (it must go one past if this is the case) and must stop on the vertical bar – otherwise it skips 2.

    5, 1-2-1-3-1-4

    The best answer would be 5


  15. John Lewis Highsmith | Guest

    CCW rotation also gives 5 as the answer.


    CCW Moves 6, 7, 5, 7, 4
    CW Moves 2, 1, 3, 1, 4


    Note the sums of the respective moves.

    4

    I’d say 5. It fits the series.
    1, skip 2, 1, skip3, 1, skip 4


  19. Jerrud Edwin | Profile

    Number 5, 2,1,3,1,4, 1,5 etc

    The pattern is:



    2 units CW
    1 unit CW
    3 units CW
    1 unit CW




    True
