Incorrect

Too bad!

Look at the three-dimensional structure of each shape.

B is the answer.

The numbers hidden in each shape determine the sequence for this order. When you turn each shape 90 degrees clockwise, a number becomes visible. In the case of B, turning it sideways reveals the number 4.
