Is anyone able to solve this matrix? It came up on a practice aptitude test I'm taking and this one in particular had me stumped.

Thanks! enter image description here


1 Answer 1


Spontaneously, I would say

second alternative because exactly one of $\{←, ↑, ↓\}$ occurs as middle element of every row


for each column, the two outer symbols contain exactly two occurences of a set of three symbols (in first column $\{↘,↓,↑\}$, in the second column $\{ ↙,→,←\}$ and in the third, $\{ →,↑,↗\}$).

Based on this,

the second ($↑↓↑$) choice is the only possible.
