I did find out a pattern in the shapes in the squares, but I did not find out a pattern that governs where the shapes are in the square. Any help in this problem would be appreciated. Thank you.
Horizontally, in each row, there are 3 shapes in total in the square - circle, square and triangle. In the third row, the square is missing, leaving us with options D and F. Also, from the first two rows, there are 2 squares where the shapes inside them share the same position. Since none of the positions of shapes in the first two pictures of the third row is the same, the only solution found in options A-F that is correct is option F, since the square is on the top left, which is that of the second picture of the third row.
