Explanation:
If we label the four elements in the figure as ; then the arrow at position 1-rotates 45oACW and 135oACW alternately; the element at position 2 rotates 90oACW and moves to position 3 in each step; the element at position 3 rotates 90oACW and moves to position 4 in each step and the element at position 4 moves to position 2 and gets replaced by a new element in each step.
