1. 1, 4, 9, 16, 25, ?
1) 35
2) 36
3) 48
4) 49

Ans: 2) 36
Solution: 12 = 1, 22 = 4, 32 = 9, 42 = 16, 52 = 25
Similarly, 62 = 36

2. 20,19,17,?,10,5
1) 12
2) 13
3) 14
4) 15

Ans: 3) 14
Solution: So, 17-3= 14

3. 2, 3, 5, 7, 11.?, 17
1) 12
2) 13
3) 14
4) 15

Ans: 2) 13
Solution: Above all numbers are prime numbers 2,3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17.

4. 165, 195, 255, 285, 345, ?
1) 375
2) 420
3) 435
4) 390

Ans: 1) 375
Solution: 165 + 30 = 195,
195 + 60 = 255,
255 + 30 = 285,
285 + 60 = 345,
345 + 30 = 375

5. 5, 17, 37, 65, ?,145
1) 95
2) 97
3) 99
4) 101

Ans: 4) 101
Solution: The series follows the pattern of
22 + 1, 42 + 1, 62 + 1, 82 + 1, …….

Directions : ‘
Questions (6 to 10) : In the following questions, one term in number series is incorrect. Find out the incorrect number.

6. 105,85,60,30,0,-45,-90
1) 105
2) 60
3) 0
4) -45

Ans: 3) 0
Solution: Here the sequence follows the terms – 20, – 25, – 30…….
So, 0 is wrong and must be replaced by (30 – 35). i.e., – 5

7. 325, 259, 202, 160, 127, 105, 94
1) 94
2) 127
3) 202
4) 259

Ans: 3) 202
Solution: Here the sequence follows the terms
-66,-55,-44,-33,-22,- 11
i.e.,
259 – 325 = – 66
.
.
.
127 – 160 = -33
105 -127 = -22
94- 105 = – 11
So, 202 is wrong and must be replaced by (259 -55). i.e., .204

8. 125, 126, 124, 127, 123, 129
1) 126
2) 124
3) 123
4) 129

Ans: 4) 129
Solution: 9. 2, 5, 10, 50, 500, 5000
1) 5
2) 10
3) 50
4) 5000

Ans: 4) 5000
Solution: 2 x 5 = 10,
5 x 10 = 50,
10 x 50 = 500,
50 x 500 = 25000
Here the series follows, the product of preceding two terms. Here, the product of 50 x 500 = 25000.
So 5000 is wrong.

10. 46080, 3840, 384, 48, 24, 2, 1
1) 384
2) 48
