# Matrix type IQ puzzle (intermediate)

Found these tasks, although not looking too advanced, I can't seem to solve them.

What are the solutions and why?

One way of visualizing the pattern in the second question is

since then

the red bar rotates clockwise 90° while the green stands still first, and the rotates clockwise 90° for each column. I'll admit it is a bit of a stretch though :-)

For the first question, depending on how well-designed the test is,

it could be the second choice (the empty box with black blob below) since then the parity (odd/even) of white and black outer blobs are the same (on each row) and the number of blobs are equal in the left and right-most column (i.e., 3,3; 3,3; 1,1) are equal on each row. That is the only reasonable pattern I could find...

the third answer from the left,

because,

based on the pattern of the white wings relevant to the square, they rotate 90 degrees clockwise intact, then lose t

the third answer from the left,

because,

based on the pattern of the white wings relevant to the square, they rotate 90 degrees clockwise intact, then lose the opposite white wing and rotate 90 degrees clockwise again, rotate 90 degrees clockwise intact, lose the other white wing and rotate 90 degrees, rotate again as is, gain a wing back at next 90 degree rotation, rotate again intact, so the questionable position it should gain another wing with the last 90 degree rotation. The only choice with both white wings intact sideways is the third answer from the left. For the black wing showing up on the bottom in the answer there must be a larger pattern present beyond the sets of objects shown. For the dot not present in the answer is due to every other pattern of presence.
