Discussion :: Analogy - Section 2 (Q.No.1)

Each of the following questions consists of two sets of figures. Figures A, B, C and D constitute the Problem Set while figures 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 constitute the Answer Set. There is a definite relationship between figures A and B. Establish a similar relationship between figures C and D by selecting a suitable figure from the Answer Set that would replace the question mark (?) in fig. (D).


Select a suitable figure from the Answer Figures that would replace the question mark (?).

Problem Figures:                            Answer Figures:
    (A)     (B)      (C)     (D)                  (1)      (2)      (3)      (4)      (5)

[A]. 1
[B]. 2
[C]. 3
[D]. 4
[E]. 5

Answer: Option A


The figure rotates 90oCW; gets reduced in size and also gets enclosed in a figure with one less number of sides.

The figure is not decreasing by one side only the size decreases.

The figure rotates CW surely.

Answer should be 5 as per the explanation given.

The rotation of the figure happens before enclosing inside a figure with a side lesser.

I think the answer should be 5.

Amrit said: (May 28, 2017)

The answer is 5.

Rohan Tyagi said: (Nov 3, 2020)  
The answer should be 5.

Shakil Sagar said: (Nov 11, 2020)  
The answer should be 5 because figure rotates 90 CW and become sequence.

The answer is A because on E the rhombus only ROTATES 45*CW. On D, the shape surrounding the rhombus has too many sides. On B, it's obvious the there is a different shape in the middle. On C, you can't have an equal amount of sides in each shape on this figure. This leaves A, ROTATING 90*CW, having one less amount of sides on the shape surrounding, and the shape on the third figure shrinking. Hope this helps settle that the answer is not E.
