The V progresses vertically down 1 unit per turn and every other turn rotates. This eliminates a) and b).

The other character progresses counterclockwise every turn.

Difference between 1 and 2 turn = 1 unit CCW
Difference between 2 and 3 turn = 2 units CCW
Difference between 3 and 4 turn = 3 units CCW
Difference between 4 and 5 turn = 4 units CCW
therefore,
Difference between 5 and 6 turn = 5 units CCW

I found this puzzle very hard, but here its my approach:
1) the V symbol always goes one step down in the middle column and rotate 90 degrees clock wise every 2 steps.
2) the other symbol move backward in his row, if its located in the left most cell of the row, it goes to the right most cell of the next row, but when the V symbol rotates 90 degress the other symbol goes to the his left upper diagonal always, i did not find relationship in the way the second symbol its form .

so i think is D, but to be honest I am not 100 % sure.

I also thought that the the symbol different that the V symbols moves like an S in the square but the pattern break in the last item so, i abadon that theory

The arrowhead symbol is pretty straightforward. That doesn’t need any discussion. It definitely has to be c, d, or e.

But the second symbol is little more challenging.
I tried to look at it as simple as possible. So I came up with patern: two symbols on top, one in the middle, next one on the bottom, and next two catching the begining so being on the top agian. That means it has to be e because its the only one with symbol on the top.
My suggestion is: e

It’s difficult even to describe it, if one doesn’t wants to write a novel…

I chose D simply because — between C, D and E, — on D the second symbol is in the only position that doesn’t repeat itself; after excluding other possibilities, of course. It’s easy to see it if you draw it.

E is my answer, useing the v as a directional sign the sequence goes as this, down down, left left, up (up) as in options E and D, since mathamatical symbols is the hint, a square does not fit into the answer so D with the addition sign follows the hints given. Looks complecated at first glance use deduction but overthinking it can really complecate the answer. KISS (keep it simple stupid) hehe thats what my engineer friend used to tell me.

sven254| Profile January 7th, 2008 - 8:58 amThe Correct Answer is d)

The V progresses vertically down 1 unit per turn and every other turn rotates. This eliminates a) and b).

The other character progresses counterclockwise every turn.

Difference between 1 and 2 turn = 1 unit CCW

Difference between 2 and 3 turn = 2 units CCW

Difference between 3 and 4 turn = 3 units CCW

Difference between 4 and 5 turn = 4 units CCW

therefore,

Difference between 5 and 6 turn = 5 units CCW

c) is 4 units, e) is 6 units

Shawn| PUZZLE GRANDMASTER | Profile January 7th, 2008 - 3:46 pmWell, there definitely should be an upside-down “V” in the bottom center of the box.

But what about the other symbol that seems to be required?

rajjo| Profile January 8th, 2008 - 11:35 pmthe answer is d.

RK| Profile January 10th, 2008 - 12:26 amthis one was kind of tough. D is the answer we were looking for

suineg| PUZZLE MASTER | Profile January 10th, 2008 - 9:04 amcounterclock wise was a nice explanation for the second symbol!, its more simpler than mine so is much better. nice!

(the first symbol is obvious)

OfTranquilRain| Profile January 15th, 2009 - 9:07 pmThe symbol in question operates under a turn in cumulation, 1, then 2, then 3, then 4, then 5
