    I have spend over an hour with this stupid matrix, overanalyzed it to death and still haven't found the pattern. I must be overlooking something simple. Let's assume there is no mistake in it. Could you tell me which answer the test says is correct? Maybe then I suddenly see how it works! This is driving me crazy and has already consumed way too much time

    By the way, I tried to send you a private message but couldn't because your mailbox is full!

    I'm hoping that's the hardest question on the test. I thought I was highly intelligent, then I look at this matrix and I think to myself, DAMN! I've hit a wall this one.

    btw. I know to solve this one, so I thought maybe the principle is the same / similar, but didnt get nothing from it. Maybe someone will.

    Hey everybody, I did a little research and - as I suspected - the OP matrix was broken.

    Here is a link where I found the correct matrix and somebody mentioning that the version Chloé had contained a mix up:

    Apparently there was a mistake in the old edition of the book.

    And here is the way the puzzle looks in the new book:

    wow, i was convinced the pattern in the answer in that link was REALLY weak.. so i tried to solve in other way and I think that's correct way.. (i guess the guy from the blog knew that answer should be A so he made a stretch with his pattern, it is definately not correct pattern)....




    My answer:

    C column defines E column, E column defines G column
    pattern is always CLUBS -> HEARTS -> DIAMONDS -> CLUBS etc

    so in row 1 it goes Clubs-hearts-diamonds
    in row 3 ex. Heart-diamond-clubs
    row 6 : clubs-heart-diamond


    etc...

    so G7 = hearts
    G8 = diamonds
    G9 = hearts

    we can already see the answer is A because it is only one with heart-diamond-heart in column A

    but there is also pattern; column C defines column E, and column F defines column H, so you can see that
    H7=diamonds
    H8=clubs
    H9=hearts
