    Matrix

    Not an original, but fun.

    Which is the missing square and why?

    Re: Matrix

    After seeing spots from the previous one, this is not so hard.

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>E. Consider the connectiona between the center of a square and each of its corners separately. In each row, and in each column, either 0 or 2 connections are actually drawn, never 1 or 3. In the missing square, the only connection needed to complete this, is the one to the lower left corner.
    Or, put otherwise: overlay the first and second square in a row (or column). Lines in the same position cancel each other, leaving only lines that occur in only one of the two.</font color=yellow></span hi>
