Find the missing sequence

What's the logic behind the patterns and can someone please mention some sources where I can practice such similar problems? Thanks

I think

>>>>

Explanation

If we take three adjacent columns(both vertically and horizontally), it contains "six <" and "six >" in total. So the top column(which is blank with ? mark) should contain "four >" in order to fulfill the criteria.

I really don't know where you can get puzzles like this to practice :(

• Yea, i also think so.. but i don't think there is another logic other than this.

> > > >

Reason:

Consider < as a left step and > as the right. According to me, the object (on which the operations is taking place) should be at the original position after all the operation in a row or in a column. So, if we put > > > > in the place, so this will be fulfilled.

Explanation:

Consider < and > cancel outs each other. So in the first row, there are total 6 right operations and 2 left operation, so to put it in the original position there are needed 4 left operations. Similarly in all the individual columns and in all the individual rows.

Maybe it's

">>>>",

since I can see

a left shift rotation in sequences in every row.
