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

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

Why not B?

Sunil Kumar said: (Jan 22, 2018)  
Yes, why not B?

Anusha said: (Feb 22, 2018)  
Because in all figures they are facing up side and not down side.

Vinay said: (Mar 2, 2018)  
As shown the line has to drawn up so why not we go fo B?

Shivam Gupta said: (Jun 27, 2018)  
Why can't it be option B)?

Ananthu said: (Aug 3, 2018)  
Nice @Anusha.

Shivaraju said: (Aug 28, 2018)  
Why not E? In this case, the triangle in lower and 3 lines are in upper, it obeys the analogy.

Manu said: (Oct 27, 2018)  
Yes right @Anusha.

Uma said: (Dec 24, 2018)  
B is the correct option because b only facing downside in this question, all are facing downside not upside.

I don't understand this. Can anyone explain it in detail?

Fani said: (Nov 27, 2019)  
Supposed to be B, isn't it?
The intersection should be in the same position as the previous one.

Gayathri Chowdry said: (Sep 4, 2020)  
It can't be B because the rectangle comes to the opposite side so even Triangle should go the opposite side.

Pushpak Aaryan said: (Feb 19, 2021)  
It can't be (B).

Because, As we can see that in the relation between Question figure (A) and (B). Which is from (A) to (B) the circle is going up and the square is coming down. Therefore, in (C) the right-angled shape should go up and the triangle should come down. Therefore is it supposed to be (B).

According to me, option B is suitable because the upper element follows the downward direction.
