Let's say that the top arc is the 1st arc and the bottom most arc is the 6th one. According to me A & B, C & D and E & F (where F is the answer) are pairs with slight change.

If we look at A & B figures, there's only one change in B i.e. only 1 arc gets inverted (6th arc).

Now move onto C & D figures. Here also only one arc gets inverted (1st arc).

Now the hint which comes up is that the Answer should be that one where only one arc gets inverted.

And only C gives that (only 2nd arc is inverted).

Fig B -1st arc changed.

FigC-2345 changed.

Since 6th is left so 6th will change.

FigD -6th changed. FigE-1234 changed.

Hence, 5th is left so 5th will change.

FigC-2345 changed.

Since 6th is left so 6th will change.

FigD -6th changed. FigE-1234 changed.

Hence, 5th is left so 5th will change.

Number 1 is inverted.

2,3,4,5 are inverted.

6 is inverted.

1234 are inverted.

So, 5 should get inverted.

2,3,4,5 are inverted.

6 is inverted.

1234 are inverted.

So, 5 should get inverted.
