Can anyone explain the logic of why the answer to the following question is d rather than c, for example?

They move downwards and to the right in rows? So d follows the line top left - centre - bottom right.

Middle left -> centre bottom
Centre top -> middle riight and would continue to a fourth square on the bottom row
Top right would -> fourth square on the middle row and a fifth on the bottom row
etc.

Thanks, ToadMum.

I am not sure I am seeing it correctly. Do you mean that the position of the circle in the first row is bottom right, centre and bottom left etc?

I mean that if you put d in the blank square, it will form a winning row in Noughts and Crosses. And if you look at the adjacent squares as parallel diagonal lines running top left to bottom right in each case, they do the same? Nothing to do with the behaviour of individual components of the symbol across horizontal rows. If that isn't meant to be the pattern, then it's a very poorly designed question imho.

Thanks, ToadMum.

I get it now. I see what you mean. I guess the only things that it is not possible to draw a conclusion about are the shapes in the top right and bottom left boxes as they do not form parts of visible diagonal lines.
