You can see that the figure is like on one side is black and on other side white and the answer is (c) is because of it's direction is on east and west and all of them are on north and west that is why the answer is (c).

But my view of solving this is, the stick is rotating anti-clockwise, so as per the directions, the last stick at number 5 should be the odd one out.

I agree with you, @Neelesh.

Deep said: (Aug 12, 2016)  
I also agree with Nilesh.

I also agree with you @Neelesh.

If we rotate anti clockwise, we can get all four except C. So'C' is the correct answer.

Sumit said: (Aug 13, 2017)  
5 is the right answer.

Amit Patel said: (Jan 10, 2018)  
I think E is the right answer.

Sulakshna Pawar said: (Feb 15, 2018)  
Agree, 5 is the right answer.

Deepak Rathore said: (Jul 16, 2018)  
Yes, correct @Nilesh. C is the correct answer.

I observed continues Rotation in anticlockwise so answers is E.

Ajay Chhetry said: (Mar 13, 2019)  
As per my view, E is the correct answer. If we rotate acw 45° except E all are matching.

Anomie said: (Mar 31, 2019)  
5 is the correct answer.

Sandesh Dhakal said: (Jun 20, 2019)  
I think 5 is right because the set is different comparing the rest of others.

Bsraval said: (Aug 20, 2019)  
E is the correct answer.

Anish said: (Mar 31, 2020)  
If we rotate anticlockwise, we don't get C because in C, we should get black in upwards direction and white in downwards.

Yogesh Kumar said: (Jan 6, 2021)  
All the other figures when rotated clockwise or anti clockwise, can make similar shapes as others, but figure 3 can not be made by any kind of rotation. So, it can't be rotated into others which make figure 3 the odd one out.

Try to take figure 1 and rotate CW and ACW, you will get figures 1, 2, 4, 5 but not 3. Thus the answer is figure 3.

Amrit said: (Feb 10, 2021)  
E should be the correct answer according to me.

Rak Pandey said: (Aug 11, 2021)  
C is the correct answer. When figures except C have rotated either clockwise or anticlockwise the position of dot and circle doesn't match with option C. Do Focus on dot & circle position.i.e dot left bottom and circle right top.
