problems with umatTutor moveable Q1?

Been having some difficulties with this question?

As suggested on the umat tutor practice question page, there are some ROTATIONs – and these refer to the smiley-heart border “square cornered U shapes” – but the main sequence is a repeated pattern, down the columns (of which there are 6 not 3) from left to right…

At the top of nearly every UMAT / HPAT test page is the phrase “…most logically and simply…”. This is very important, and should help with any confusion arising when there are only two options left to choose between to complete the diagram.

This is a continue-the-series within a complete-the-diagram question so discover what the repeated series is, then make sure it is completed in its final repeat, with the chosen diagram…

Smiley, smiley, heart, heart, heart… are you smiling now?
