I have a scrollable horizontal card list.

Only one card can be selected inside the list. How should the selected item be displayed from a good UX perspective?


  1. With a border around the card.

  2. Making the selected card slightly large than the other cards.

  3. Displaying an icon like a check mark on the selected card

Something else?

You could just set an opacity to all other cards except the candidate one. If you don't like this approach I think all solution could be accepted. It's very dependent on the whole layout so you can't say that the best solution is the 1 or 2 or 3
