There's nothing tricky going on here. Take another look at the contraption and the four patterns, and try again.

UK Version

There's nothing tricky going on here. Take a good look at the contraption and the four patterns and see if you can work it out.

US Version

Pay close attention to the first strokes of paint that the brushes will make. This is, by far, the most helpful hint you'll get. Seriously.

Don't waste any more hint coins.

UK Version

Pay close attention to where each brushstroke will start. This is the most helpful hint that there is.

There will be no more real hints after this.

US Version

How is the paint applied to to the brushes on this contraption, anyway? Is each one dipped in paint separately? Or is there some crazy paint bucket that the whole contraption is dipped into at once? Why is the sky blue?

UK Version

How is the paint applied to this device? Is it applied to each of the brushes separately, or is there another device to coat all the brushes simultaneously?

There's nothing but questions with this contraption...

US Version

What is the point of this crazy painting contraption anyway? What situation whould call for such a wacky paint job?

Maybe aliens made it? Wouldn't alien technology be more advanced, though?

It's quite puzzling, but I guess most everything is a bit of a puzzle when you really think about it...

You should be able to get this.

UK Version

What kind of purpose could a brush like this have? It would have to be pretty specific, surely...

The world is full of puzzles.

Too bad!

Take a deep breath and try again.

UK Version

Too bad.

Take a deep breath and look at the diagram again carefully.

Correct

US Version

Correct!

The contraption will paint pattern C.

Not sure who would want anything painted by this crazy thing, but whatever...

UK Version

Nicely done!

The contraption would paint pattern C.

But why would someone want to paint patterns like this?
