But in figure 4 no of dots outside are 2 more than the dots inside the figure.

Dev said: (Aug 22, 2011)  
You r right Kanchan. So, the ans is D because it ask about different from the rest.

Priya said: (Aug 30, 2013)  
Answer is A because in all other option we fold the paper and they are mirror image of each other but that is not possible in case of A.

Tod said: (Apr 11, 2014)  
D could have also been the correct answer because the rectangle has no slanted lines unlike the rest of the shapes.

Animesh Chincholikar said: (Oct 6, 2016)  
Here, the answer is inappropriate. It must be 1. As the no of dots are 1 less than the sides of the figure.

So, Answer is 1.

Answer is d because in 1st total no dots is 5 in second total no of dots is 5.

In 3rd total no of dots is 7 and in 5th total no of dots are 3 all dots are odd in no's but in fourth no of dots is 6 that is even so d is answer. So except d option other option consists odd no of dots i.e. 5, 5, 7, 3 and d consists 6. i.e even no so d is the answer.

Then why it is not option 3?

Imran said: (Dec 17, 2017)  
Answer 3 is correct because each figures have no side is exactly divisible by no of dots outside.

Sweetybhadoria said: (Aug 8, 2018)  
Option E is also correct because the dot is at the centre and no other figure has a dot at the centre.

Srija said: (Dec 25, 2018)  
Total no of dots are odd except fig D. So, the answer should be option D.

Abhishek said: (Jun 8, 2019)  
In my opinion, in picture 4 there is 4 dot means even numbers. Other pictures dots are odd numbers.

Charmaine said: (Nov 14, 2020)  
Its D because the 6 dots and is an even number the rest of the dots are odd numbers.
