# IQ test question - Almost paper folding, but maybe not? [duplicate]

This is one of the random IQ test puzzles available here. I can not find a clue to this at all and this is sort of bugging me for some time now.

It could be some kind of paper folding or just rotations; I am not sure though.

• @BeastlyGerbil I do know where this question comes from, it comes from this IQ test website. I am 100% sure, even the colours are the same. It is question 2 of the quiz. Dec 10, 2020 at 1:43

This is an

XOR operation, acting from left to right.

(There may be some pattern acting top to bottom, but I haven't spotted it)

So

If you 'add' the left and the middle squares, it works as an XOR to produce the right square. So if a line is present in both squares, or in neither, then it won't be in the right square.

Therefore the answer is:

B

Just to add my idea into the pot, I guessed

B

Because:

it's the only unique answer compared to all of the given images, allowing for rotations. I'm not sure if that's the intended way to answer it, but it matches the previous answer.

Neat!
