im not understanding your explanation

It's not that hard. Construct a convex polygon containing all the points in one of the diagrams:

Then count the vertices of the new polygon.

Except that the resulting convex polygon doesn't use ALL the points from the original -- just the ones that conveniently fit into drawing a convex polygon. Since you said "with all those points" I'm not surprised I was the only one confused.

Cerine explains my reasoning perfectly.

Of course, another possible pattern I see would continue 8, 7, 9, making A the right answer; but since this pattern kind of breaks down after that and the polygons are alternating (at least so far) between one and two per picture, I'm disinclined to go with A. Of course, it's entirely possible that the correct answer is based on a pattern I'm not seeing at all.

Please can you tell us the answer to the first puzzle?

My suspicions were that the puzzles were made up by the person posting them, and that no real solution is behind them.

Do I win something?

I didn't make these puzzles.
Althought it may seem they don't make sense, there must be logic behind them. Needless to say, they are tricky.
