# Non Verbal Reasoning - Series - Discussion

### Discussion :: Series - Section 1 (Q.No.5)

Each of the following questions consists of five figures marked A, B, C, D and E called the Problem Figures followed by five other figures marked 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 called the Answer Figures. Select a figure from amongst the Answer Figures which will continue the same series as established by the five Problem Figures.

5.

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 A

Explanation:

One, two, three, one, two, three.....arcs get inverted sequentially. This inversion takes place in an ACW direction.

 Vivek said: (Jan 26, 2011) What is ACD direction?

 Sundar said: (Jan 26, 2011) ADC - Anti Clockwise Direction

 Jaya said: (Apr 19, 2011) What is the initial position? How the arcs inverted?

 Divay said: (Jul 27, 2011) Expalin clearly their movements.

 Anil said: (Aug 4, 2011) Take (A). note that 1 arch moved anticlockwise in (B). note that 2,3(anticlockwise) are moved anticlockwise in (C). note that 4,5,1(anticlockwise) are moved anticlockwise in(D). note that 2 arch is moved anticlockwise in (E). So its time to move 3,4 arch anticlockwise which is in (1) image. that's all.

 Suba said: (Aug 24, 2011) Top is initial position (it is inverted first in b). Move anticlockwise direction for further movement.

 Rahul said: (Sep 2, 2011) @Anil-Very well explained

 Prajesh said: (Apr 24, 2012) How can we say that they are rotating in Anti-clockwise direction?

 Vimal Singh said: (May 14, 2012) I still wondering how you moved that arch ACW wise?

 Shivakumar said: (Dec 19, 2013) I still wondering how you moved that arch ACW wise? No it is not.

 Ashu said: (Jan 28, 2014) Guys take it this way! Let A) b initial figure. Now observe fig B) , here topmost arc is tilted, and only one arc tilted in move 1 from initial fig. A). Now move 2. Make 2 arcs tilted from fig B) i.e. Left most arc below top most and the arc next to it in ACD. Now move 3. Tilt the next 3 arcs. Move 4 make only 1 tilt. Then move 5 make 2 arcs tilted we get answer fig 1.

 Gaurav said: (Jun 4, 2014) The meaning of anticlockwise is the direction in which we looking into the figure. Name 1,2,3,4,5 to each symbol in the anticlockwise direction and then reverse the direction of each symbol, In B the 1 symbol is reversed. In C following anticlockwise direction reverse the direction of 2,3. In D now 4,5,1.(Remember since we need to reverse a total of three). In E now 2( reversing only one). In next step 3,4(reversing two symbols). I hope it will be clear now.

 Abdullah said: (Nov 2, 2014) What is verbal and non-verbal reasoning?

 Shubham said: (Sep 17, 2015) Answer is D. Because in each step, the CW-end element moves to the ACW-end position.

 Punam said: (Nov 22, 2015) How do we match the problem figure and answer figure?

 Human said: (Jan 23, 2016) What is ACW direction?

 Sadaf said: (Aug 11, 2016) Note that 1 arch (upper arch) moved anticlockwise (downwards) in (B). Note that 2, 3 (leftmost arches) are moved anticlockwise in (C). Note that 4, 5, 1 (right most arches and upper arch) are moved anticlockwise in (D). Note that 2 arch (leftmost arch) is moved anticlockwise in (E). 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 1, 2, next will be 3, 4. So it's time to move 3, 4 arch anticlockwise which is in (1) image. That's all.

 Karthick said: (Aug 19, 2016) I can't understand the series reasoning. So, please anyone clearly explains how to understand the series reasoning aptitude.

 Gopika said: (Aug 30, 2016) What does one, two, three arcs mean?

 Jules said: (Sep 24, 2016) In D the bottom right flips, but the top one also flips in this image. Is this a mistake?

 Jules said: (Sep 24, 2016) If it's one, two, three sequences, i.e top left, bottom left, then top right, bottom right, shouldn't the answer be 3?

 Sai said: (Oct 19, 2016) What is this initial arc? Please explain me.

 Nausheen said: (Feb 9, 2017) @Anil. Your explanation was really perfect. Thanks.

 Akash said: (Jul 5, 2017) Perfect Explanation @Anil.

 Sudd said: (Aug 26, 2017) You explained it well, Thanks @Anil.

 Cinda said: (Dec 22, 2017) Wow, amazing explanation @Anil. Thankyou.

 Rahul said: (Jan 16, 2018) Answer A is not right, but answer c is right.

 Rahul said: (Jan 16, 2018) Answer A is not right, but answer c is right.

 Miss.Srh said: (May 1, 2018) What is the meaning of Acw direction? I didn't understanding.

 Rathore said: (May 26, 2018) Why not B is the right answer?

 Anomii said: (Jul 14, 2018) Good explanation @Anil.

 Nipa Patel said: (Aug 22, 2018) According to me, It is right.

 Ansu said: (Oct 8, 2018) Nice explanation @Ashu.
