It's:

C. The number of dots in each row is $n,n+1,n-2$. The columns start $5,6,7$, and C is the only box with $5$ dots.

  • $\begingroup$ @EdMurphy; It counts the number of dots in the whole box, and then looks for a pattern in these. Claire's method is the same, but finds the vertical pattern which is admittedly a lot simpler than the one I found! $\endgroup$

You could also find the answer using vertical columns rather than rows. Each column is n, n+1, n+2. The lower right box needs to have 5 dots.
