Pick the correct continuation for the sequence.

Two of the options are legal symbols in the sequence, two are not.

  • $\begingroup$ are the examples all legal symbols in this sequence? $\endgroup$ – Jasen Jul 20 '19 at 5:06
  • $\begingroup$ @Jasen Not necessarily. $\endgroup$ – jafe Jul 20 '19 at 8:26

I'll go with


because I'm squinting hard enough to see

rotated Roman numerals in a descending sequence.

Like so:

This also fits the hint of only two options being legal, since

 A = IX 
 B = IVI (illegal)
 C = III
 D = IIII (should be IV, since we are not a clock)

I think it's



You're counting binary top down, with finger = 1 and space = 0
So the sequence is:

1011 = 11 $->$ 1100 = 12 $->$ 1101 = 13

Next would be: 1110 = 14
Which equates to 'finger-finger-finger-space' which is picture C

  • $\begingroup$ I think that the gaps between the fingers do matter. Also, the second element has a gap too. $\endgroup$ – EKons Jul 19 '19 at 17:39
  • $\begingroup$ Gaps are covered in my answer, but I see what you mean about the second picture. There is some space there, though it's smaller than all other gaps. I immediately read those fingers as 'together' but could definitely be wrong. $\endgroup$ – TwoBitOperation Jul 19 '19 at 17:46
  • $\begingroup$ the second sign has a gap, $\endgroup$ – Jasen Jul 20 '19 at 5:08
