The images were originally the same, but one of them has now been flipped right-left and spun around an unknown amount. The shapes are the same as in the original image with the exception of one, which has been changed slightly.

Circle the shape that's different.

If you eliminate the shapes that don't change even when flipped, you can narrow it down.

UK Version

Some shapes remain exactly the same when they're flipped. You can narrow things down by eliminating these.

US Version

Do some shapes that appear to be flipped only look that way because they've been rotated?

Don't be fooled by the rotation.

UK Version

Do some shapes appear to be individually flipped only because the whole image has been rotated?

It's a round shape.


Solution

Incorrect

Too bad!

Look carefully. You might have missed something.

Correct

Terrific!

US Version

The answer is G. You might have been fooled by the flipping, but since you were paying attention to differences along the shapes' axes, you must have found the answer pretty easily.

UK Version

The answer is shape G. It's easy to be fooled by the flipping, but if you pay attention to the relationship between the shapes and the axis, the answer's pretty easy to find.
