Solution

The correct option is B

D^


It is easier to crack the logic behind certain patterns involving letters and/or special characters if we can associate them with numbers. In this case, by setting A = 1, B = 2, C = 3, ..., Z = 26, let us see what the first letter in each term ties up to:

U=21
B=2
I=9
P=16
W=23
D=4

Looking at the difference of these numbers, the following logic is almost obvious:

U+7B+7I+7P+7W+7D+7K

Also, the special characters in each term repeat in a cyclic fashion, starting from "!" and ending at "$".

Therefore, the next term in the sequence would be 'K#'.
