The puzzle “Noughts and Crosses”
was published in a book intended to train the reader towards his application for Mensa membership.
Basically three upper rows of a 4x4 matrix were given (see below) and
the solver was requested to “fill the bottom line of the matrix with a combination of noughts and crosses that logically completes the matrix”
X O O X
O X X X
X O X X
? ? ? ?
I have found several logical answers in addition to the single “official” answer provided in the book.
I request you solvers to follow suit and to justify all your choices.

From what I understand, Noughts and Crosses is in fact the name that Tic-Tac-Toe goes by in the U.K., so if the book gave the puzzle that title, it would certainly point in the direction of this being a 4x4 version of that game, by whichever name it is called.
