    I had no reason but said that C is the one that least conflicts so... Kind of funny that was correct.

    sometimes there are really many answers, but those questions should be kicked out. i dont see many answers in this one,but because after seeing it's C i didnt look more.
    Part of the problem with C (or any of the choices) is that you could never reach that answer if the problem wasn't multiple choice. For example the 12 o'clock ball goes

    12 o'clock black-black-nothing-nothing
    10/11 o'clock pink-white-pink-white
    9 o'clock black-pink-white-black

    If C is correct the 12 o'clock follows a 2-on, 2-off cycle. The 10/11 o'clock follows a length 2 oscillating cycle. The 9 o'clock follows a length 3 oscillating cycle. There is no consistent pattern. One could never arrive at C without a multiple choice option.

    Here is a different pattern: The number of balls is 6 - 7 - 4 - 5. The most obvious pattern is +1 then -3 for balls. So there should be 2 balls in the final answer. (Obviously that is not one of the choices given.) Another pattern could be 6 - 7 - 4 - 5 - 6. The answer has 6 balls. However since each previous entry had at most one pink ball we can eliminate C, so A is correct.

    And this is just a sample. I could go on and on. There are a lot of ways to come up with an answer, but in the end you could never be sure which one was right unless multiple choice options were given. That is because there is no consistent logic to this problem so it has to be invented and tweaked until it starts to resemble one of the answers.

    Agree with LiquidLaser. If you dig, there are probably other legitimate answers.

    I'd probably say (starting at top going anticlockwise):

    1. black-black-none-none (can conclude nothing)
    2. purple-white-purple-white (pattern)
    3. black-purple-white-black (suggests a pattern with purple next)
    4. white-white-white-white (constant)
    5. none-white-none-white (pattern)
    6. black-white-white-black (suggests a pattern with white next)
    7. white-white-none-none (can conclude nothing)
    8. none- none-none-none (constant)

    Solution has:

    2. purple (rules out A)
    4. white (rules out B and D)
    5. none (rules out B and D)
    8. none (rules out B)

    probably has:
    3. purple (fits with A and C)
    6. white (fits with A and C)

    C is a good answer

    Yep. Which is why I end up going with whatever is most consistently close to what I see.

    I did it! (C)
    I'm not really good at "filling in the blank" tests like this. Though I'm better at it when it's not with numbers...

    I've looked at each bead separately. I assume all patterns are repetitive with a period of three or less, otherwise the thing is unsolvable.

    From the top bead clockwise:
    Black, black, none, none, black.
    None, none, none, none, none.
    White, white, none, none, white.
    Black, white, white, black, white
    None, white, none, white, none
    White, white, white, white, white
    Black, pink, white, black, pink.
    Pink, white, pink, white, pink.


    If they say "logical" they mean "the simplest pattern". I've got difficulties with guessing what THEY see as the simplest pattern... Mostly there are more than one answer to those things.

    Take this one for example:

    B W B W W B ?

    1) B
    2) W

    That's the first pattern I found. After I realized it was not the answer, I stopped because I was annoyed.

    Edit: And now that I've stared at it another five minutes, I also thought it could be B. Each of the three pics contains two white balls at identical lengths from each other, and these pairs face in the direction of three different quadrants. Answer B has white balls at the same length from each other that face in the fourth quadrant direction. Specifically, it goes: down/right, up/right, down/left, and then answer B has up/left.

    I would have chosen A or C since the amount of balls was even-uneven-even, but from there I had no idea how to solve it. I'm stupid. I never get these couple of hardest puzzles they throw in the IQ tests.

    I voted for B, because I didn't bother reading the OP, and because my surname begins with B. After I read the OP I would have voted for D because it looks like an insect panda with a bump on its head and a turtle. Who said F's can't think?

    Well such tests aren't exact science. They ask you to give which is they most logic one of those the offered.
    And if they gave you 4 lines, of course the pattern they imagined needs to fall within 4... i mean, if you have 12 o'clock white-white-nothing-nothing
    you can imagine it goes "white-white-noth-noth-pink-pink-black-black-all over again" - but it clearly doesnt go like this because then it would be unsolvable.

    so yes, there are many answers to this, but not in the way they asked it.

    Here is a different pattern: The number of balls is 6 - 7 - 4 - 5. The most obvious pattern is +1 then -3 for balls. So there should be 2 balls in the final answer. (Obviously that is not one of the choices given.) Another pattern could be 6 - 7 - 4 - 5 - 6. The answer has 6 balls. However since each previous entry had at most one pink ball we can eliminate C, so A is correct.
    so if you saw the reasoning for C, and this one, you'd pick A?
    no. i dont think so.. because clearly C is much stronger reason.

    and i dont see how 6-7-4-5-6 should be valid.

    if you go by 6-7-4-5 next one should be 2.
    so 6-7-4-5-2-3
    and even ignoring the fact there are black balls too... or that last offered has no pink ones.

    edit: yeah i saw now the "2" answer, but it's not offered... and IMO 6 balls makes no sense...

    C is a good answer
    I wrote down 12,3,6 o'clock because i didnt know how to name the other positions but over all conclusion it's C was from all 8 ball positions.
