I was practising abstract questions as part of my UKCAT revision, and I am stuck for why something is that answers... I've attached a print screen of my question, its a paint file, the answer for it should be B but I don't know why!

I'd be grateful if someone could explain it. Thanks in advance x

It's the only box containing the 8 shapes/lines that the set of 4 contains (think that's it anyway).

the 4 boxes on the left each contain:

a large white square
a small black square
a white rectangle
a black rectangle
a small horizontal line
a longer horizontal line
a small vertical line
a diagonal line

those 8 things are present in all 4 boxes, just they overlap in some cases

of the 4 answers,

box A is missing the white rectangle
box B seems to have all 8 shapes
box C is missing the black rectangle
box D is missing the diagonal line

Therefore answer is B

hope this helps
