__Answers & Solutions:__

**1) Answer (B)**

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

**2) Answer (D)
**

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.

**3) Answer (A)**

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.

**4) Answer (D)**

Here the pattern followed is the sixth letter from the starting letter of previous word is first written. Then the second word to th e rigt i swritten and subsquently second word to th eleft is written.

We are supposed to find fourth word. The initial letter of the previous word is O. The sixth letter from O is U. Second letter to th eright of U is W and to th eleft of O is S.

Hence, then word is UWS.

Option D is correct answer.

**5) Answer (A)**

Here, there is repetition of series twice and then subsequent truncation.

First PQRS…series is truncated and next ABCD…is truncated.

Going by this pattern, PQRS will be truncated. However the next letter is R in the series.

Option A is correct answer.
