    $\begingroup$ Seriously? Bart Simpson, Milhouse and even Ralph Wiggum got a variant on Pattern 2. (In your defense, Lisa was stumped by it.) $\endgroup$ – Peregrine Rook Mar 16 '18 at 17:39

    $\begingroup$ I'm putting this question on hold until proper attribution of its original source is provided. It looks like you're asking us to solve a puzzle you found elsewhere. For content that you did not create yourself, please provide attribution - at minimum you need to let us know where this came from, and any additional context you can provide is usually a big help to solvers. Posts which use someone else's content without disclosing where it came from are generally deleted. $\endgroup$ – Rubio Mar 17 '18 at 0:54

Pattern 1

This is two independent patterns overlaid.  I show them both below, in arbitrary (top-to-bottom) order, with the fourth image included.

The patterns correspond to the (outer) square being a clock face with two hands.  The first pattern has a hand with a hollow (white with a black border) square on its clockwise side.  This moves 45° counterclockwise at each step:


The second has a hand with a solid black square on its counterclockwise side.  This moves 90° clockwise at each step:

(Note that, in the third image, the solid black square overlays and obliterates the hollow square.)

Overlay the fourth images from the two series and you get Answer A:

Pattern 2:

This is just the (capital) letters “C”, “D” and “E” overlaid / overlapped with their mirror images:
            

So the fourth image is the (capital) letter “F” overlaid / overlapped with its mirror image:
            
which is Answer A.

Pattern 3:

If we number the images left-to right, top-to-bottom (so the top row is images 1, 2 and 3), then

  • Image 1 is image 3 plus image 7.
  • Image 6 is image 2 plus image 4.
  • This leaves images 5, 8 and 9 unaccounted for.  Well, Image 5 is image 8 plus image A.
So, again, the answer is A.

The solution

to all of the patterns is A

Pattern 1:

- the solid black square moves 90 degrees clockwise
- the not-filled square moves 90 degrees counter-clockwise and rotates 45 degrees
- of the two straight lines from the edge to the center, one moves 90 degrees clockwise and the other moves 45 degrees counter-clockwise

Pattern 2:

Each image is composed of the letter C, D, E and its mirrored version.

Pattern 3:

Number the images as follows:
1 2 3
4 5 6
7 8 9
Then, 3 and 7 together form 1; 4 and 2 together form 6; and A and 8 together form 5.
