I can't understand. Why all figure arrow is v shape?

Elan said: (Dec 24, 2013)  
The +sign and arrow sign were laid on the dark shade side. But in the case of 4th fig, the +sign and arrow sign lie in white side.

I'm confused with the question.

Anurag said: (Jul 13, 2016)  
In 4 + is on the left side and arrow is on the right side, while in others it is opposite.

Rajesh said: (Aug 10, 2016)  
4 is correct and it is different when compare to 3 diagrams.

Bidur said: (Aug 16, 2016)  
Except in 4 + and arrow are at the black side.

Yoshirin Konichiwa said: (Sep 28, 2016)  
If you see, the arrow is near the side with the black dot. However, in 4, it is near the side without the black dot.

Ashwini said: (Oct 5, 2016)  
I am confused. Please explain me.

Khushal said: (Dec 20, 2016)  
As per my knowledge, (this side of the arrow is towards black painted region) ---> (this side is towards white painted); except option 4.

Maya said: (Dec 21, 2016)  
1, 2, 3, 5 Arrow starting from the black shaded region.

4 Arrow starting from the non-shaded region.

Chander said: (Aug 9, 2017)  
Plus sign is always with the dark shade except 4th.

Sam said: (Oct 26, 2017)  
I can't understand this. Please explain.

Priyanshu Pandey said: (Jan 22, 2018)  
I think its C (3).

Mehedi said: (Jan 28, 2018)  
+ & arrow sign only indicates dark side to dot except option 4.

Chaitra said: (Feb 28, 2018)  
In all the figures + and arrow are placed in dark shaded place where as in 4th figure those + and arrows are in unshaded place.

Hiha said: (Mar 6, 2018)  
Also in figure 4 the + appear in the right side, the rest on left, if you consider to view the image on one side.

Abhishek said: (Jun 7, 2019)  
4 is correct, because;

Take 1 and 2 pics consider as one group. Bcoz their arrow facing smaller side.
Take 3 and 4 pics and consider other groups because arrow facing the smaller end.
So 4th pic common to all.

Sindhu said: (Sep 16, 2019)  
In all the arrow is from thick part but the fourth one is the opposite. So it is the answer.

Manasvini said: (Nov 1, 2019)  
I'm fed-up with this question. Can anyone help me out with this question? ! Please.

Shiv Kumar Raghav said: (Nov 12, 2019)  
Plus and arrow is white side but in all figure plus and arrow is the black side.

Adarsh Pathak said: (Dec 4, 2019)  
SIMPLE THING the arrow is always away from the side painted black except the 4th one where the arrow is unfortunately towards the side shaded dark i.e., the smaller side though the smaller or larger side doesn't matter what matters is the *arrow pointing direction* and *the shaded side*
