1. Directions:(1-5) Find the wrong term in the series given below.

##### 1. Question

59, 69, 90, 125, 169, 229

Ans:5
The pattern is as follows:59 + 10 = 69

69 + 10+ 11 = 90

90 + 10+ 11+ 12 = 123

123 + 10+ 11+ 12+ 13 = 169

169 + 10+ 11+ 12+ 13+ 14 = 229

2. ##### 2. Question

10, 22, 46, 96, 190, 382

Ans:5
The pattern is as follows:10 x 2 + 2 = 22

22 x 2 + 2 = 46

46 x 2 + 2 = 94

94 x 2 + 2 = 190

190 x 2 + 2 = 382

3. ##### 3. Question

704, 688, 652, 588, 490, 344

Ans: 4
The pattern is as follows:704 – 42 = 688

688 – 62 = 652

652 – 82 = 588

588 – 102 = 488

488 – 122 = 344

4. ##### 4. Question

99, 53, 27, 15, 9, 6

Ans:3
The pattern is as follows:(99 + 3) / 2 = 51

(51 + 3) / 2 = 27

(27 + 3) / 2 = 15

(15 + 3) / 2 = 9

(9 + 3) / 2 = 6

5. ##### 5. Question

42, 70, 106, 152, 202

Ans:2
The pattern is as follows:62 + 6 = 42

82 + 6 = 70

102 + 6 = 106

122 + 6 = 150

142 + 6 = 202

Directions:(6-10) What should come in place of the question mark (?) in the following number series?

##### 6. Question

2, 9, 30, 105 ,436, ?

Ans:2
The pattern is:(2+7)x1 = 9, (9+6)x2 = 30, (30+5)x3 = 105, (105+4)x4=436, (436+3)x5 = 2195

6. ##### 7. Question

1237 ,1547, 2158 ,2471 ,3079 ?

Ans:3
In every term, the first two digits are formed by adding the first two digits of the previous number to the sum of their digits. Same is true for the last two digits as well.(12+1+2)(37+3+7) = 1547, (15+1+5)(47+4+7) = 2158, (21+2+1)(58+5+8) = 2471, (24+2+4)(71+7+1) = 3079.

Hence next term (30+3+0)(79+7+9) = 3395

7. ##### 8. Question

828 ,280, 75 ,21 ,10.5 ,?

Ans: 2
828/3 + 4 = 280, 280/4 + 5 = 75, 75/5 + 6 = 21, 21/6 + 7 = 10.5, 10.5/7 + 8 = 9.5
8. ##### 9. Question

39.48 ,40.59, 42.81, 46.14 ,?

39.48+1.11=40.59, 40.59+2.22=42.81, 42.81+3.33=46.14, 46.14+4.44=50.58
9. ##### 10. Question

97 95 91 83 78 ?

Ans:3
The next term is obtained by subtracting the difference of digits from the number.97-2 = 95, 95-4 = 91, 91 – 8 = 83, 83 – 5 = 78, 78-1=77
