Hi guys! I'm sorry if this is the wrong thread because this seems to be the closest for the type of question I have. I have been reviewing some Figure Series problems and there is this one problem that got me so confused

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
There are three (3) figures given and you will have to identify from among the given choices which one would be the fourth (4th) figure. This is the link of the figure that I was talking about which is Problem Number One (1).

2. Relevant equations
Three (3) figures are shown. The first (1st) figure shows an encircled hexagram. The second (2nd) figure shows that the two sides of the top triangle was removed. The third (3rd) figure shows that the two sides of the bottom right triangle was removed.

3. The attempt at a solution
Considering the second (2nd) and the third (3rd) figure, I was thinking that the fourth (4th) figure should be Choice D with a rationale that the disappearance of the two (2) sides of a triangle was occurring in a clockwise direction and skipping the two (2) sides of the triangle next to it.

However, the answer key which was provided to us had the answer to be Choice B (highlighted yellow in the image link) which cancels out my rationale.
