A. 1
B. 2
C. 3

43. 

Select a figure from amongst the Answer Figures which will continue the same series as established by the five Problem Figures.

Problem Figures:                          Answer Figures:
  (A)     (B)     (C)     (D)     (E)       (1)     (2)     (3)     (4)     (5)

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

Answer: Option E

Three and two arcs are inverted alternately. The central element rotates 90oACW and 180o alternately.

44. 

Select a figure from amongst the Answer Figures which will continue the same series as established by the five Problem Figures.

Problem Figures:                          Answer Figures:
  (A)     (B)     (C)     (D)     (E)       (1)     (2)     (3)     (4)     (5)

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

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

All the elements together move one space to the right in each step and once they reach the rightmost position, then in the next step, they move to the leftmost position. Also, in the first step, the first (uppermost) and the third elements interchange positions; in the second step, the second and the fourth elements interchange positions and in the third step, none of the elements interchange positions. These three steps are repeated to continue the series.

45.

Problem Figures:                          Answer Figures:
  (A)     (B)     (C)     (D)     (E)       (1)     (2)     (3)     (4)     (5)

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

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

In each step, the elements move in the order
