Can somebody please explain the phrase "can be rotated into each other".

Nonu said: (Oct 27, 2013)  
If all figures can be rotated then why A option is the corrected.

Select one figure and try to feet in other figure.

In above example fig.2 can fit in figure 3, 4 and vice versa by rotating each other.
But fig.1 one cant fit in other three figure.

Vishwa said: (Jan 13, 2015)  
But all the figures are looking like same.

Rayhan said: (Sep 16, 2015)  
The suggested reason related to rotation is also correct but all the figures are also having at least one hand horizontal to 0 to 180 degree plane except 4. This is also valid isn't it?

Consider all figure are drawn in a paper and when you fold the paper figure 2 overlap with figure 3 and figure 4 overlap with figure 5, but figure 1 doesn't overlap with anyone of this figure.

Not getting this, Please explain clearly.

First of all the way its arranged in the box its shows we have to rotate it to visualise.

Assume AB are two parts close to each other and C is far (like in fig. 2).
Rotate fig.2 with some angle you will get fig.3 (AB then C part above).
Rotate fig.3 with some angle you will get fig.5 (AB down then C part above).
Rotate fig.5 with some angle you will get again fig.4 (AB up then C part down).
Rotate fig.5 with some angle you will get fig.2 (AB left side then C part right side).

So, 1 is different.

Figures 2, 3, 4, 5 can be rotated into each other but 1 figure can't be obtained by just rotation but we have to turn upside down figure 1 and then rotate it to get other figures.

The petal in the middle leans towards the right except in A.
