# I have added the link to a puzzle which I have asked in the math site.i will be glad if anyone helps me with this

Please go through the link which has my question. All the details I've included there. The first row is question and the second one options. Which comes next in this sequencing question?

This question(first row cited as A B C D) contains 4 patterns and I want to know among the options given(the second row with pics cited as 12 3 4) which one comes next after the last in the sequencing.

My guess is

1

Because

The number of 'V's that flip each step alternate between 2 and 4. Therefore, the next step will have 3 'V's pointing in, and 2 'V's pointing out. (1) is the only option that fits this.

• Yea 1 is the option given in the key.but I'm still confused about how did you explain the C D sequence in the question.its like being rotated.i don't get you :/ Commented Oct 10, 2016 at 8:10
• I don't see it as rotated, but as the right and bottom-right 'V' both being flipped. Commented Oct 10, 2016 at 8:15
• start with picture A, and at the bottom left "V". first flip two "V"s moving counterclockwise, so you flip bottom-left and bottom-right, to get to picture B. then continue moving counterclockwise and flipping: flip 4 "V"s, ending at bottom-left "V" to give you picture C; then flip two more (to get picture D), then four more (pic E), then two more. you'll end there after flipping the top "V", leaving you with picture (1).
