    I think its D the answer.

    Every row has a different inner figure in black, empty and with lines.
    The outer figure moves backwards.

    Would have to say c.

    (3 of each figure )

    Answer: (d)

    There are 3 rectangles, 3 circles, and 2 triangles, so we can assume that the missing large shape is a triangle.

    Each large shape contains the same type of inner shape (circles contain triangles, rectangles contain circles), so we can assume that the missing shape triangle contains a rectangle.

    Each large circle contains a differently-shaded inner shape (open, shaded, black), but the large rectangles do not follow this pattern, so the missing shape does not need to do so.

    There are 3 black inner shapes, 3 shaded inner shapes, and 2 open inner shapes showing, so we can assume that the missing shape has an open inner shape.

    Answer: d

    This one was a little tricky too; we had D as the best answer, as Shawn desribes

    Going both left to right, and top to bottom, the shape pattern – triangle, rectangle, circle – is visible in both large and small shapes. Therefore the outer shape would be triangle, and inner shape would be rectangle. The inner shading follows a visible diagonal pettern. I would have to say the answer is (C).

    Let me announce the correct answer: D,

    Each row fulfills the 3 types of filling for the smaller object as well, if the object were to be D.

    I have to say its B (I’m the only one :O), the shape pattern in vertical and horizontal is perfect with B – not the shading though :( Answer C fits the diagonal shape pattern (facing to the right not sure about left) but completely violates the horizontal and vertical pattern. So My Guess goes with B

    I say it’s D, final answer ;-} Follows shaded,open,solid pattern. My fiance thinks it’s C muahaha.

    the answer is C. If you were to put the same picture in a 9×9 grid. Meaning this whole thing x9 stacked on top and around each other. Then you can notice that diagonally down and left it is the same type of object all across. While diagonally down right you will notice the same pattern. Therefore C follows both there rules.

    oh ya and to add, i noticed down right it goes no fill, no fill, black, no fill, no fill, black. This does not change the answer from being c

  15. redpoppy | Profile

    I think it is (c)

  16. shoaib | Profile

    d is the fig. which comletes the matrix

  17. lifetear | Profile

    Answer is “d”

  18. someone1994 | Profile

    When looking at the shapes only, there are 3 of each kind so the answer is either c or d. When only looking at the colors of the inner shapes, there are no inner shapes having another inner shape to the left right above or below with the same color wich rules out d.
    c is the answer
