with each step, one edge of the hexagon is getting removed and one edge is getting added to the inner figure summing up the total number of edges in the complete diagram to be same.

step 1

Outer figure - 6 edges, Inner figure - 0 edges

step 2

Outer figure - 5 edges, Inner figure- 1

step 3

outer figure- 4, inner - 2

therefore in step 4, the outer figureĀ should be havingĀ 3 edges and inner figure 3 edges.
