The Morning After

- in which hearts walk shamefully


3

Today's puzzle is a venture in IQ Test chic. Be they numerical or pattern-based, series puzzles aren't traditionally my bag. Especially with the numerical ones, I often overthink myself into crazily elaborate possibilities. The plurality is the issue. Of course, multiple choice is a great friend in such scenarios and you should feel free to enjoy its playing field leveling tendencies as long as it remains too difficult for me to construct a system that requires the solvers design the answer themselves.

Today's series plays with three-fold rotational symmetry and a color cycle. There's also a toggle floating around in there to add a little spice to the pot. Three physical entities to track and three different properties. Have fun with them.
