# Can anyone help me out with this?

Can someone help me out with this? I tried a-lot of combinations to see which one it would logically be, but I'm stuck as of this moment.

• What is the source of this puzzle? Jun 15, 2017 at 15:31
• Seems like a rotation puzzle Jun 15, 2017 at 15:32
• The answer is clearly a or b, but possibly c with a change for d too. Case closed. Jun 15, 2017 at 15:33

It's:

C. The last box in a row contains the elements that the previous two boxes have in common.

• Well, that's clearly the answer. Jun 15, 2017 at 15:36

The answer is C. The puzzle would make more sense if the puzzle had consistent factors both vertically and horizontally (instead of just horizontally). Edit2: Nope. It's not all one puzzle. It's two examples followed by a puzzle. Whoever made this doesn't understand the benefits of spacing.

Edit1: Oh, I'm being downvoted! Thanks for the warm Stack-exchange welcome!

Anyway, boboquack wants me to update my answer. so here you go: It appears that there are at least two potentially consistent factors per horizontal row. This rules out B and D. None of the factors that have been removed from previous panels in the first two rows were added back in later panels on the same row. Therefore A doesn't seem logically consistent with the rest of the puzzle. With so little information that's more of an assumption than a provable trend, but it's enough information to make C a more likely answer, as there's no potential reason for it not to be.

Though, in hindsight, it appears that my method for solving this puzzle is a bit more... roundabout than Johnmark Perry's. (I clearly made this puzzle into something more complicated than it is after overlooking something simple; I initially mistook this for a grid puzzle rather than three different examples, and approached it as such. Some spacing would make the puzzle more clear, honestly)
