Solved Example  Number Series
Question 1. 20, 32, 45, 59, 74, ?
(A) 95
(B) 90
(C) 85
(D) 79
Solution: The differences between the consecutive terms of the series are 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, …..
2^{nd} term = 1^{st} term + 12 = 20 + 12 = 32
3^{rd} term = 2^{nd} term + 13 = 32 + 13 = 45
4^{th} term = 3^{rd} term + 14 = 45 + 14 = 59
5^{th} term = 4^{th} term + 15 = 59 + 15 = 74
Thus, ? = 6^{th} term = 5^{th} term + 16 = 74 + 16 = 90
Hence, the answer is (B).
Question 2. 210, 195, 175, 150, 120, ?
(A) 75
(B) 80
(C) 85
(D) 90
Solution: The differences between the consecutive terms of the series are 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, …
2^{nd} term = 1^{st} term – 15 = 210 – 15 = 195
3^{rd} term = 2^{nd} term – 20 = 195 – 20 = 175
4^{th} term = 3^{rd} term – 25 = 175 – 25 = 150
5^{th} term = 4^{th} term – 30 = 150 – 30 = 120
Thus, ? = 6^{th} term – 35 = 120 – 35 = 85
Hence, the answer is (C).
Question 3. 3, 5, 10, 12, 24, 26, ?
(A) 52
(B) 30
(C) 28
(D) 48
Solution: Each odd term doubles the previous even term.
3th term = 2×2^{nd} term=2×5=10
5th term = 2×4^{th} term=2×12=24
Thus, = 7^{th} term = 2×6^{th} term=2×26=52
Hence, the answer is (A).
Hence, the answer is (A).
Question 5. 2, 6, 10; 5, 9, 13; 10, 14, 18; ?, ?, ?.
(A) 12, 14, 16
(B) 14, 17, 20
(C) 17, 21, 25
(D) 15, 20, 25
Solution: Each group have a common difference of 4 among its consecutive terms. Also the difference between the consecutive first term of each group is 3, 5, 7, etc.
Thus, ?, ?, ? = ( 10 + 7), (17 + 4), (21 + 4)
= 17, 21, 25,
Hence, the answer is (C).
