**SolutionsÂ (1Â toÂ 10)**

1) Answer (e)

The pattern in the series is,

$17+1\times2=19$.

$19+2\times3=25$.

$25+3\times4=37$.

$37+4\times5=57$.

$57+5\times6=87$.

Hence, Option E is the correct answer.

2) Answer (a)

The pattern in the series id,

$61 + 21 = 82$.

$82 + (21\times2) = 82 + 42 = 124$.

$124 + (21\times3) = 124 + 63 = 187$.

$187 + (21\times4) = 187 + 84 = 271$.

$271 + (21\times5) = 271 + 105 = 376$.

Hence, Option A is the correct answer.

3) Answer (e)

The pattern followed by series is,

Hence the next term will be = 61+36+141.

=$238$. Therefore, Option E is correct.

4) Answer (e)

The series follows a pattern:

$179+1^{3}=180$.

$180-2^{3}=172$.

$172+3^{3}=199$.

$199-4^{3}=135$.

Hence, Next term in the series will be = $135+5^{3}=260$.

Therefore, Option E is correct.

5) Answer (a)

14,6,5,6.5,12,?

Let unknown quantity be’x’.

The series is $(14\times0.5 – 1), (6 \times1 – 1), (5\times1.5 – 1), (6.5\times2 – 1),……$.

Hence,$x=12\times2.5-1$.

$x=29$.

Hence, Option A is correct.

6) Answer (e)

Consecutive natural numbers are added

8 $\times 1$ =Â **8
**8Â $\times 2$ =Â 16

16Â $\times 3$ =Â 48

48Â $\times 4$ =Â 192

192Â $\times 5$ =Â 960

7) Answer (c)

Multiples of 0.05 are alternatively added and subtracted

16.8 $+ 0.05 \times 1$ = 16.85

16.85 $- 0.05 \times 2$ =Â 16.75

16.75 $+ 0.05 \times 3$ =Â 16.9

16.9 $- 0.05 \times 4$ =Â 16.7

16.7 $+ 0.05 \times 5$ =Â **16.95**

8) Answer (c)

The pattern isÂ :

8 + $12$ = 20

20 + $12 + 3$ = 35

35 + $12 + 3 + 4$ = 54

54 + $12 + 3 + 4 + 5$ = 78

78 + $12 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6$ =Â **108**

9) Answer (d)

The pattern isÂ :

16 $\times 2$ =Â **32
**32Â $\times 1$ =Â 32

32Â $\times \frac{1}{2}$ =Â 16

16Â $\times \frac{1}{4}$ =Â 4

4Â $\times \frac{1}{8}$ =Â 0.5

10) Answer (c)

Square of odd numbers are added

63 $+ 3^2$ = 72

72Â $+ 5^2$ =Â 97

97Â $+ 7^2$ =Â 146

146Â $+ 9^2$ =Â 227

227Â $+ 11^2$ =Â **348**
