After each pin's looking in the same direction you will find a single straight pin but in 2 you will find 3 straight pins. I dont see it related with rotation's.

In option (1) there is a + sign and multiply symbol passing through center point. In op (3) +sign and multiply symbol is rotated anti clockwise direction (or opposite of + and *). In (4) and (5) options.

Symbol is rotated 135 degree anti clockwise direction. So option (2) is unrelated.

Move each pin in the 1st figure and in anti clock wise direction, keep every pin in 4th position and you get 3rd figure. For 4th and 5th do the same but now this time in clock wise in 3rd position and you get 5th figure from 4th, 2nd is a loner!

Figure 5 is right because of the only one 90 angle arrow extend & other all figure three arrow is extend in 90 angle.

No, the Answer is wrong.

Answer 4 is the right option as all the figure is rotating in a clockwise direction except fig4.

Dharpreet Kaur said: (Feb 28, 2017)  
Option 4 is correct. As all the figures are rotating in a clockwise direction except 4.

Anand Rao said: (Jul 27, 2017)  
Options 4 and 5 are rotating in CW direction whereas Options 1, 2 and 3 rotating in ACW direction. Hence, the above logic doesn't imply here.

If the puzzle is odd man out. Then Fig. 4 is the answer. The middle parallel line is plain, others having one small "L" share is there.

LLL following l in option A.
LLL following lll in option B --> (so this is correct).
LLL following l in option C.
LLL following l in option D.
LLL following l in option E.

Mahesh said: (Feb 8, 2021)  
B is correct why because except 2 remaining all have 1L after 3 Continues L's.

Shrikant said: (Jun 6, 2021)  
B is right.

Imagine a straight line is dividing the objects. The part where there is only one L is similar in all except 2 in which L is facing outward. So the correct answer is 2 i.e. B

I think 5 is the answer as it has the middle line cross while others having horizontal and vertical.
