Focus on the right half of figures two through six.

UK Version

Focus on the right half of figures two to six.

Look closely. There's a letter hidden within each figure.

Considering the pattern going on in the shapes, the first figure should correspond to the letter A.


Solution

Incorrect

Too bad!

Study the details of each figure one more time.

Correct

Good job!

The peculiar sequence of figures is actually the first six letters of the alphabet displayed in a digital-clock font and mirrored as shown above.

Since you have letters B through F, logic dictates the missing figure should be a mirrored version of the letter A.

UK Version

The peculiar sequence of figures is actually the first six letters of the alphabet displayed in a seven-segment LED style and mirrored as shown above.
