Discussion Forum : Letter and Symbol Series - Type 2 (Q.No. 5)
Directions to Solve
Look carefully at the sequence of symbols to find the pattern. Select correct pattern.

5.
1
2
3
4
Explanation:
Look carefully at the number of dots in each domino. The first segment goes from five to three to one. The second segment goes from one to three to five. The third segment repeats the first segment.

I think the answer should be C, because if you look carefully, then in the first segment upper boxes the sequence is 3, 2, 1 and lower boxes sequence is 2, 1, 0. Similarly in the second segment upper boxes sequence is 0, 1, 2 and lower boxes sequence is 1, 2, 3.

So if you observe the pattern carefully then in the third segment the upper box contains 1 which should be followed by 2, 3 and lower box contains 0 which should be followed by 1, 2 and this condition is satisfied with option C only.

A is also correct but with 2 segments the recurrence can not be determined perfectly. This is what I think.

@Vicky

No. You are wrong. The given answer is correct.

Just rotate the first-set (consist of 3 boxes) to 180 degree clock wise. Then you will get the second set of diagrams.

Now rotate the second set of diagrams to 180 degree clock wise, you will get the image same like as first set of diagrams.

Hope this will you. Have a nice day!

I think the people saying that the answer is not A are missing the fact that the "?" is in front of the domino that will have a dot on the upper part and nothing on the bottom part, so one has to see the pattern in the first one and put that in decreasing order of the number of dots.

I think A is the correct answer.

As the question mark place prior to the provided image. If the question mark place after the provided image than the Answer should be C.

Here, the question mark is placed right before the domino so we have to find out the first two boxes, not the boxes that will follow the given Domino. Hope this helps!

Here the position of the question mark is crucial.

For this position, A is right. But if It would be given at last then we will have to choose C.

The question mark is not after the image. It is asking what comes before a single dot. So 5 3 1 third image should be mirror image of second.

Option should be 'C' because if the third segment repeats the first segment then the answer is 1- 3- 5, thus C is the correct answer.

Dots are either 1, 3, 5 or 5, 3, 1. i.e either is increasing or decreasing order of dots so.

I think the correct answer is C. Because it should be either 5, 3, 1 or 1, 3, 5.
