I saw the question below on Bexley/Bromley forum and I got stumped as well.

I thought I should post it over here to get help from the brainy mums and dads on NVR. :D

I'll be brave and say think I would go with "E" since that is an option- is this a question from a past paper?

It's one of the Stage 1 Entrance Test (SET) Sample Questions published by St. Olave's, and it says the answer is C. :shock:

Is it c because they are 3d shapes and each one in the enclosure has 3 faces as does c ?

Tough question

I answered this question in the Bromley forum yesterday. I love these Q's and find them easy.
For those who don't know the answer I've copied my explanation below.

frangipani wrote:
Each shape has at least one line (diagonal) stretching from one corner to another — that rules out A
Each shape has a line inside that creates a set of parallel lines — that rules out D
The other line (i.e not the one that creates parallel lines) inside each shape creates a triangle within the shape — that rules out B

This leaves C as the answer
