Why not figure number 2? because, in all the other figures all the three circles are inter locked to each other but not in fig.2.

In figure 5 the two circle does not interlocked. They just touch each other. So it is option 5.

I still think this was somewhat ambiguous because you could argue that in all except figure 2 the three circles touch each other.

Why not 2.? Circles interconnected to each other.

Manikant Sharma said: (Jul 4, 2017)  
This question must have two correct answers. Option 2 and 4. Because for both the answers their respective justification is correct.

Nagendra said: (Oct 16, 2017)  
Why not 2, can't we think that all the circle to be intersect?

Why not 2? Please explain.
