Answer is E because each figures 1, 2, 3, 4 having same numbers of shapes = 4. Only in figure 5 numbers of shapes are 5 which is S. So, the answer should be E.

Answer can be 5 because all other figures have lines except 5th.

Answer can 5 also. Each shape has multiple figures.

But "5" has "S" where only one is present.

The answer is 5 because there are 5 shapes.

Reason 1: In all the other figures except 5, there are 3 different symbols. But in fig. 5, there are 5 different symbols.

Reason 2: In fig 1, 2, 3 and 4, the common symbols are '=', 'o', 'x' and the other symbol is a new one. But in fig. 5, there is no '=' symbol, as well as 'c' and box shapes are repeated. The new symbol 'S' has no multiples.

In each of the figures except 3, all the signs are in AP.

The answer could have been 5 because in the other boxes there are multiples of one shape but in 5 there is one "S" shape.
