DC asked me for help but I got stumped as well. What is the right answer and what is the reasoning? Thank you in advance!

I'd say E.
The example the top of the straight is white and so is one at the end of the 'bead' one. The straight middle is shaded, as is two of the beads, two together and one at the opposite end.
The bottom of the straight one is diagonally cross hatched and so is the bead between the two shaded ones.

If you rotate E by 180 and use the same pattern it matches.

Thank you for your attempt, Tinkers. My DC thought it was E as well and but, apparently, this is not the right answer.

Which is the right one? I'll see if we can work backwards.

hi, apprentice
only top, middle and bottom squares' patterns are used in the new shape
top - 1
middle - 3
bottom - 1 again

The example has 5 different shaded squares changing to 5 beads and 5 lines with 3 beads shaded the same. Plus two beads match the top and bottom squares.

Answer C is the only one that follows the pattern.

You make it look so easy, frangipani
*** I missed that C & E are the same shades and need the number of lines too... Will remember to count everything (!) in the future

Thank you very much for your help, Galantina!
Frangipani, you are like a god/dess of NVR, aren't you? Every single time, you put me in awe!
