Please give me explanation.

I think the second option will be the answer.But why the third option? please send the explanation.

Tushar said: (May 9, 2011)  
Third option is correct because it shows the closing figure instead of 1, 2, 4.

Hi, Would you please explain the appropreate reason for that.

For that I'm very grateful to you.

Thank you sir.

In the first figure
according to the rule given they have to remove one line from bigger figure and add one line to smaller figure..
but they have remove only one line in all figure which does not follow the rule.. so it is wrong..

in the second figure
they not removed any line .. so it is also wrong..

in the third figure
they have followed the ruled so it is correct..
that is they have removed one line from bigger figure and add one line to smaller figure..

in the fourth figure
they followed the rule up to second step but went wrong at the third step.. that is they removed one line from the bigger figure but they did not add one line to smaller figure..

i hope u understood..
thank u .. have a nice day..

Option 3 is correct it is in a continuous series.

Chhaya said: (Jan 24, 2012)  
It is correct be ause it follows the rules such as the closed was losing sides and te once open figure was gaining side.

Debu said: (Feb 29, 2012)  
I agree to the answer of nagendra.

Ali Raza said: (Jul 2, 2012)  
3 option is correct because step by step ruled is followed whether in second one some steps are skipped. And due to continuity of removing and adding lines the 3 option is appropriate.

In option 1 shape is changed in their flow.

In option 2 closed fig not losing their side.

In option 3 each and every closed fig losing their sides and open fig gaining their sides.

In option 4 mismatch of losing and gaining.

So option C is correct.

Friends we have to just check that on every iteration the side of outer figure is decreased by one and that of inner figure is increased by 1.

So, option C is correct. :-).

In figure C , the sides of the hexagon(closed figure) is reducing one by one while the sides of the parallelogram(opened figure) is increasing.

Since, the parallelogram(opened figure) required 3 sides, So 3 sides of the hexagon(closed figure) has been reduced.

Hence it follows the rule.

Asif said: (Aug 4, 2015)  
According to given rule:.

Option 1 Fail as the outer figure is not decreasing.

Option 2 Fail as the outer figure remains as it is.

Option 3 Satisfies the rule as the outer figure is decreasing and inner figure is increasing for each iteration.

Option 4 Fails as the 4th iteration is not decreased.

Correct Answer : C.

In 1st diagram outer diagram is not continuously losing and clearly 2nd one can be eliminated but in 4th again last to part of the diagram is failing and the only 3rd is following the rule.

Santhoshini said: (May 23, 2016)  
The given 3 option is correct. Because the hexagon is reducing its side step by step and the inner parallelogram is forming step by step so that's the answer.

Pulak said: (Aug 9, 2016)  
The Option 3 is correct correct one for this question.

Nayan said: (Aug 9, 2016)  
Give me a clear and easy explanation.

Ankul said: (Nov 25, 2016)  

You can find a particular sequence in the third figure whereas sequence break in all other options. Please look you find it clearly.

Rachit Prajapati said: (Apr 6, 2017)  
In third option, the closed figure losses one side, at the same time open figure gains one side.

And it matches the rule given above.

Sumit said: (Feb 7, 2018)  
Yeah, the third option is right because in third option the closed figure lose it's arm one by one and the opened figure get it's arm. And at the last primarily closed figure lose it's 3 arm and primarily opened figured closed by getting 3 arms.

Please give me the correct explanation for the answer.

Balaji said: (Dec 6, 2020)  
From my point of view, the hexagon (closed figure) loses a side, then it is known as an open figure.
