The number of regions in the pictures (ignoring the background):
$4, 5, 1, 2, 3$.

There is a pattern to the number of lines making each pair of shapes, and it goes
(12,10) , (4,2), (6,4)
E having 4 lines.
Answer is B according to me. Check the number of divisions of the figures. They appear to be a,a+1,b,b+1,c,c+1. 4 in first, 5 in second, 1 in third, 2 in fourth and so on.
