Non Verbal Reasoning - Classification - Discussion

Discussion :: Classification - Section 1 (Q.No.1)

In each problem, out of the five figures marked (1), (2), (3), (4) and (5), four are similar in a certain manner. However, one figure is not like the other four. Choose the figure which is different from the rest.

1. 

Choose the figure which is different from the rest.

   (1)     (2)     (3)     (4)     (5)

[A]. 1
[B]. 2
[C]. 3
[D]. 4
[E]. 5

Answer: Option A

Explanation:

The pins, equal in number to the number of sides in the main figure are attached to the midpoint of a side of the main figure in case of figures (2), (3), (4) and (5). In fig. (1), these pins are attached to a vertex of the main figure.

The explanation is correct, but the key was wrong.

I cannot understand.

Sushil said: (Jan 17, 2014)  
In fig. 2, 3, 4, 5 all the pin pointed inside the side of fig. But in fig. 1 all pins are pointed inside the edge. Now I hope you understand.

Devineni Harika said: (May 4, 2014)  
The answer is first option because.

Only in option A THE PINS ARE POINTED AT THE VERTEX OF THE MAIN FIGURE.

Thought 5 because it's the only one that doesn't have bilateral symmetry.

Abhinav Raj said: (Jan 13, 2016)  
I will go with @Devineni Harika statement. She is right.

Satish Kumar Pandey said: (Aug 13, 2016)  
Of course, the first answer is right. Because, the mid point show how to attached.

Very good explanation, Thank you all.

Parul said: (Apr 6, 2017)  
Could not understand because all pins in each figure are equal like same their sides.

Please someone help me.

Tapan Boro said: (Dec 2, 2017)  
Very good explanation. Thank you.

Issil said: (Jul 19, 2018)  
Answer E) could be also correct, as it is the only which has no vertical line of symmetry.

Sudhansu said: (Aug 31, 2018)  
Answer is 4 because pins and sides are not equal.

Rabitha said: (Jun 1, 2019)  
1, 3, 4, 5 have least four angles except 2. Which has only 3, so, why not 2?

Prasant said: (Aug 23, 2019)  
Thanks for explaining.

Monique said: (Nov 9, 2019)  
Item 2 is the only one sitting on a point. All others are sitting on a flat surface - so why not 2?

Parth said: (Jan 30, 2020)  
I couldn't understand. Please, anyone, help me to get it.

Bradley said: (Feb 25, 2020)  
All of the figures are stable and could sit on a table except (2) which sits on a vertex.

Luis said: (May 31, 2020)  
I agree with @Issil.

Option (E) could also be correct, as it is the only which has no vertical line of symmetry.

Very good explaining. Thanks all.

I am not understanding. Please, anyone, explain.

I think 2 is the correct answer.
