In the given number sequence, the 2 is repeated and at nth place staring from 2 to (n+1) number is repeated.
This can also be visualised by viewing the series as:
2
2 3
2 3 4
2 3 4 5
2 3 4 5 6
2 3 4 5 6 7
Hence, the next number in series, going by this logic would be 5.
The correct option is B

Based on the English alphabet, the above arrangement follows the following pattern :
The first alphabet in each word is
C –(+6)–> I –(+6)–> O –(+6)–> U
The second alphabet is
C –(+2)–> E
âˆ´Â U –(+2) –> W
And the third alphabet is
C –(-2)–> A
âˆ´Â U –(-2) –> S
Thus, UWS wil be the next letter in the series.

The above series is the combination of two series i.e. :
PQRST & ABCDE
After that, last alphabet of the first series is removed => PQRS & ABCDE
Then ,the last alphabet of the second series is removed => PQRS & ABCD
After that, S should be removed => PQR & ABCD
Clearly, the next letter is R.
