Does anybody see the most reasonable solution for this pattern riddle:
Could be d because the rule is that the amount of empty tiles contained in the previous two columns leads to the amount in the last and on top of that every tile has two shapes in the top left corner and every row would have all 4 shapes and all shapes have all 3 colours
It could be option d), but also thinking it could be option b) as every row from top-to-bottom has 3 filled in shapes (the top one has 3 circles and the bottom has 3 triangles), makes me think the 2nd row is the inconsistent one, which could may mean it needs a filled in square for that last box. So option
I took the test and looked at the results. According to the source, the answer is
D. The explanation being that the top left corner always has two elements while other positions have arbitrary number of shapes. Which makes sense considering this is only the fifth (our of 15) question.
My original guess was
e for a reason similar to that of deepthinker's. Thought the blank space for the third figure is the addition of the first two (excluding overlapping), and then rotated 90 degrees clockwise.
