I think that it relates to the shaded areas within each shape. In the other 4 shapes it is possible to draw a vertical line through the shape and on either side of that line the shading is either horizontal or vertical. In shape C it is not possible to draw such a vertical line - you would have to rotate the shape.

How a 10 year old would work that out in 30 seconds though....!

If you start with the vertical line filling and go in a clockwise direction through the different parts of the shape, they always follow a pattern

Vertical lines -> Dot -> Horizontal lines

All the choices, except C, follow this rule (C - Vertical lines -> Blank -> Horizontal lines -> Dot)

Thanks so much for the help from all of you. When I checked through old postings, I found another explanation. It says that C is the only one without a straight outside line. No matter which method I choose, it will all give answer C. I do find this question difficult and have told my daughter that I don't blame her for not getting this one right. It is a bizarre question in the first place.
