Bongard letters (1)


In 1967 the Russian scientist M.M. Bongard published a book containing 100 problems. Each problem consists of 12 small boxes: six boxes on the left and six on the right. Each of the six boxes on the left conforms to a certain rule. Each box on the right contradicts this rule. Your task, of course, is to figure out the rule.

Though I’m in the midst of a series Bongard problems on Dates and times, I throw in a couple on letters just for a change.
