I believe it's:

Bottom middle.

Based on:

Pattern matches from top to bottom, diagonal from top left to bottom right, and left to right. + is due to missing option with 2 triangles and rotation.

  • $\begingroup$ Close, you have choosen one with the correct number of inner figure positions. One hint is that both the 4 position cube structures and the 6 position pyramid structures all is someway (sometimes hidden behind others) containing 9 sub-figures that is mapped onto the available 4 or 6 positions. The pattern is quite complex to visualize because of the dynamic limit of available positions. $\endgroup$ Mar 5, 2018 at 18:33
