a) 8

b) 13

c) 20

d) 34

i.e. a number in the series is the sum of previous two numbers.

So, in this 8+13 = 21. So the wrong number is 20.

Hence, the answer is 20.

3. Find the next number in the series: 80, 99, 120, 143, 168, …. ?

a) 182

b) 123

c) 195

d) 249

View Answer

Explanation: Here, each number is one less than square of a number.

i.e. 92=81-1=80, 102=100-1=99, 112=121-1=120, 122=144-1=143, 132=169-1=168.

So, the next number will be 142=196-1=195.

Hence, the answer is 195.

4. A person is fourth in the queue from starting. If he shifts 2 position forward, now he is seventh from the end. How many people are there in the queue?

7. Complete the following series 4, 12, 30, 56, …?

a) 68

b) 80

c) 110

d) 40

Hence, the answer is 110.

8. Complete the following series 4, 20, 29, 45, 70…?

a) 86

b) 94

c) 106

d) 89

View Answer

Explanation: Here, the difference between the digits is the square of digits i.e.

20-4 = 16 = 42, 29-20 = 9 = 32, 45-29 = 16 =42, 70-45 = 25 = 52.

Similarly, 106-70 = 36 = 62

Hence, the answer is 106.

9. Complete the following series 6, 12, 36, 144, 720…?

a) 8249

b) 6825

Hence, the answer is 4320.

10. In a row of 26 boys, when Sourav shifted five places towards the left, he become 10^{th} from the left end. What was his earlier position form the right end of the row?

a) 10^{th}

b) 11^{th}

c) 12^{th}

d) 13^{th}

View Answer

Explanation: Here, there are 26 boys and Sourav is in 10

^{th}position from left end after shifting. i.e. Sourav is in 15

^{th}position from left before shifting. So 26 – 15 = 11 i.e. there are 11 boys before Sourav, so his position was 12

^{th}from the right end.

Hence, the answer is 12

^{th}.
