List of properties:
Fig 1: Item set
Set one: Large triangles. Three large item sets: triangles/squares/circles.
Set two: Small triangles. Three small item sets: triangles/squares/circles.
Answer: Outer triangle/inner triangle.
Fig 2: Item set
Set one: Parallel lines. Three main item sets: parallel bars/Hs/squares.
Set two: Wave distortion. Three form sets: wave/horizontal/diagonal.
Number sequence: 3. Number sequence: 3,4,5.
Answer: 3 wavy parallel lines.
Fig 3: Position
Squares move to the right and down one row.
When there is no more space, the leftmost cell moves down a row.
Answer: Center, center right, and leftmost bottom cells.
Fig 4: Angle.
Rows one and two: The half-lines and the complete line move CW.
Properties are often associated with specific items, zones, and actions.
1. Item set
Items: Item sets emerge from identical items or emerging themes in a group of items.
Items: Multiple item themes may imply multiple item sets.
Zones: Item sets appear frequently in both 'rows' and 'irregular cells.'
Actions: Items sets are created through matching items.
2. Number sequence
Items: Number sequences usually define an item sets.
Items: Number sequences appear in both main and smaller secondary items.
Items: Sides or smaller secondary shapes are often associated with additive or multiplicative operators.
Actions: Results involve addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
Items: Sides or smaller secondary shapes are usually associated with constants (fixed numbers).
Zones: A constant applies to a whole matrix when all the cells contain the same number of matching items.
Items: Position uually applies to smaller shapes in individual nine-cell grids.
Actions: Position is mostly associated with move and rotate.
Items: Lines are most often associated with angles.
Zones: Due to the complexity of distinguishing and comparing angles, the angle property appears mostly in rows.
Actions: Angles are usually formed due to the rotation of lines.
Items: Size applies to both lines and shapes.
Actions: The size property is associated with 'resize.'
Items: Direction usually applies to arrows and smaller secondary items.
Actions: The direction property is usually associated with 'rotate' and 'mirror.'
