Why not Option C ?

Ganesh said: (Jul 2, 2013)  
Its not Option C as the arrow is Option E is closer to black dot than in Option E :)..Hence Option E is the answer.

Jady said: (Jul 13, 2015)  
To me option C is correct. The arrow is further away from the black dot, not closer. Can someone explain it to me?

Sanjeevi Varadharajan said: (May 21, 2016)  
E is correct, because the same thing , Black dot(fig-A) moves upward to 45 deg in right hand direction and also the White dot moves 45 deg in right direction.

S Sapna said: (Jul 25, 2016)  
I think the Option 4 is correct.

Saleem said: (Aug 12, 2016)  
Option E is correct.

But the color of dots is wrong. The black colored dot needs to be white and the white color needs to be black.
