Explanation:

The number of edges increases by "1 " in each figure.

1. Figure "A" has 3 edges & 3 divisions.
2. Figure "B" has 4 edges & 4 divisions.
3. Figure "C" has 5 edges & 5 divisions.
4. Figure "D" has 6 edges & 6 divisions.
5. Figure "E" has 7 edges & 7 divisions.

Therefore the next figure should have"8" edges & 8 division.
-The figure "5" in the answer column has 8 edges & division.
Hence "E" is the correct answer.
