This picture has been driving me crazy all day. enter image description here


I think the answer is:



The first shape has 4 closed areas in it.
The second has 5 closed areas in it.
The third has 1 closed area in it.
The fourth has 2 closed areas in it.
The fifth has 3 closed areas in it.


The next shape should have 4 such areas.

Here are the closed areas I'm talking about:

Image representation of the areas

Note: The sequence is 4 5 1 2 3 and not 1 2 3 4 5 is probably to show that it is an infinite looping sequence ... 4 5 1 2 ..., and to obscure it a bit so it is not too obvious.
