A. 12.5
B. 1.8
C. 6.8
D. 13.2

Answer – Option B

Explanation –

The series is

3.2 Ã— 1.5= 4.8

4.8 Ã· 2= 2.4

2.4 Ã— 1.5= 3.6

3.6 Ã· 2= 1.8

2. 5, 6, 14, 45, ?, 925, 5556

A. 194
B. 184
C. 202
D. 143

Answer – Option B

Explanation –

The pattern of the series can be judged by the logical sequence given below:

5 Ã— 1 + 1 = 6

6 Ã— 2 + 2 = 14

14 Ã— 3 + 3 = 45

45 Ã— 4 + 4 = 184

184 Ã— 5 + 5 = 925

92 Ã— 6 + 6 = 5556

Key note: Multiple operations i.e. (Ã—,+), (Ã—,-), (Ã·,+), (Ã·, -) are majorly used in the number series questions.

3. 1, 5, 9, 17, 25, ?

A. 35
B. 37
C. 25
D. 28

Answer – Option B

Explanation –

$${1}^{2}$$ = 1

$${2}^{2}$$ + 1 = 5

$${3}^{2}$$ = 9

$${4}^{2}$$ + 1 = 17

$${5}^{2}$$ = 25

$${6}^{2}$$ + 1 = 37

4. 2, 4, 10, 32, ?, 652

A. 130
B. 150
C. 170
D. 190

Answer – Option A

Explanation –

The pattern followed is: 2, 4, 10, 32, ?, 652

4 = 2 Ã— 1 + 2

10 = 4 Ã— 2 + 2

32 = 10 Ã— 3 + 2

? = 32 Ã— 4 + 2, i.e. ? = 130

652 = 130 Ã— 5 + 2

5. 1, 9, 36, 100, 225, ?

A. 441
B. 484
C. 400
D. 289

Answer – Option A

Explanation –

1, 9, 36, 100, 225, (441)

$${1}^{2}, {3}^{2}, {6}^{2}, {10}^{2}, {15}^{2}, {21}^{2}$$

(3 â€“ 1) = 2

(6 â€“ 3) = 3

(10 â€“ 6) = 4

(15 â€“ 10) = 5

(X â€“ 15) = 6

X = 21

Required term = $${21}^{2}$$ = 441

Direction: In the following number series, a wrong number is given. Find out that wrong number.

A. 55
B. 14
C. 30
D. 26

Answer – Option D

Explanation –

14 Ã· 2 + 2 = 9

9 Ã— 2 + 2 = 20

20 Ã· 2 + 2 = 12

12 Ã— 2 + 2 = 26

26 Ã· 2 + 2 = 15

2. 142, 143, 156, 193, 272, 417, ?

A. 653
B. 658
C. 659
D. 657

Answer – Option B

Explanation –

The difference between numbers is $$+ {1}^{3} + 0, + {2}^{3} + 5,+ {3}^{3} + 10 , +{4}^{3} + 15, + {5}^{3} + 20, + {6}^{3} + 25$$

3. 8544, 1420, ?, 66, 18, 5

A. 862
B. 548
C. 495
D. 280

Answer – Option D

Explanation –

8544 (Ã· 6 – 4), 1420 (Ã· 5 – 4) 280 (Ã· 4 – 4) 66 (Ã· 3 – 4) 18 (Ã· 2 – 4) 5

4. 9, 19, 59, ?, 1199, 7199

A. 319
B. 279
C. 259
D. 239

Answer – Option D

Explanation –

9,

19 = 9 Ã— 2 + 1,

59 = 19 Ã— 3 + 2,

Thus,? = 59 Ã— 4 + 3 = 239,

1199 = 239 Ã— 5 + 4

7199 = 1199 Ã— 6 + 5

239 is the missing number.

5. 7, 14, 23, 34, ?, 62

A. 47
B. 55
C. 49
D. 52

Answer – Option A

Explanation –

Direction: In the following number series, a wrong number is given. Find out that wrong number.

1. 25, 21, 48, 30, 157, 121

A. 25
B. 157
C. 21
D. 30

Answer – Option D

Explanation –

25, 21, 48, (32), 157, 121

The Pattern is:-

â†’ 25

â†’ 21 = 25 – $${2}^{2}$$

â†’ 48 = 21 + $${3}^{3}$$

â†’ 32 = 48 – $${4}^{2}$$

â†’ 157= 32 + $${5}^{3}$$

â†’ 121= 157 – $${6}^{2}$$

2. 100, 101, 97, 106, 92, 115, 79

A. 101
B. 97
C. 92
D. 115

Answer – Option C

3. 4, 15, 41, 130, 378, 1141, 3415

A. 4
B. 41
C. 378
D. 130

Answer – Option D

Explanation –

The series is 4 $$\times$$ + 3 = 15

15 $$\times$$ 3 – 4 = 41

41 $$\times$$ 3 + 5 = 128

128 $$\times$$ 3 – 6 = 378

378 $$\times$$ 3 + 7 = 1141

1141 $$\times$$ 3 – 8 = 3415

Hence, there should be 128 in place of 130.

4. 1, 5, 19, 77, 307, ?

A. 1265
B. 1266
C. 1229
D. 1270

Answer – Option C

Explanation –

The given series is

5 = 1 $$\times$$ 4 + 1

19 = 5 $$\times$$ 4 -1

77 = 19 $$\times$$ 4 + 1

307 = 77 $$\times$$ 4 – 1

1229 = 307 $$\times$$ 4 + 1

5. 20, 19, 17, ?, 10, 5

A. 14
