a) 8
b) 13
c) 20
d) 34

Explanation: Here, the series is a Fibonacci series.
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.

3. Find the next number in the series: 80, 99, 120, 143, 168, …. ?
a) 182
b) 123
c) 195

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.

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?

b) 80
c) 110

8. Complete the following series 4, 20, 29, 45, 70…?
a) 86
b) 94
c) 106

20-4 = 16 = 42, 29-20 = 9 = 32, 45-29 = 16 =42, 70-45 = 25 = 52.
Similarly, 106-70 = 36 = 62

9. Complete the following series 6, 12, 36, 144, 720…?
a) 8249
b) 6825
