# Special Puzzling

How to solve this puzzling? I can't see any links between them.

This is from AEGT-P test.

• Can you clarify what the "AEGT-P test" is? Is it a thing you can give a link to, for instance? (I'm guessing not; Google doesn't seem to have heard of it.) – Gareth McCaughan Mar 19 at 19:59
• I wonder if it might be this? – GentlePurpleRain Apr 23 at 16:15

Answer with visuals (Blue is the X)

Because the figure is

3d

Example:

With each pair of images

The camera rotates around 180 degrees

So the pattern is

Top, bottom, left, right(upside down), front, back (upside down)

So it would look like:

White, black, white on top... long tail down to the x orb

• I defer my answer to this. Yay for smart people. – Samuel Reid Mar 25 at 16:58

This would be my guess:

because

Each image is a mirror across the horizontal axis (top to bottom) of the one before it. But I would also guess that when the flip happens, the circle with the "X" changes to an empty circle if it is touching a black circle. This feels too simple to be right, but it's all I've got right now.

Here's my theory:

It looks like the structure in each pair is flipped horizontally. After that, they two patterns (the x and solid) drop down vertically. So the last pattern should be the previous one flipped 180 degrees.
