a)Â 132

b)Â 136

c)Â 140

d)Â 128

e)Â None of the above

**1)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

**Solution:**

$62\times2+4 = 124+4 = 128$

$128\times4+2 = 512+2 = 514$

$514\times2+4 = 1028+4 = 1032$

$1032\times4+2 = 4128+2 = 4130$

$4130\times2+4 = 8260+4 = 8264$

$8264\times4+2 = 33056+2 = 33058$

Here 128 will come in place of question mark.

Hence, option d is the correct answer.

c)Â 359.5

d)Â 351.5

e)Â 337.5

**2)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

**Solution:**

$180\times0.5 = 90$

$90\times1.5 = 135$

$135\times2.5 = 337.5$

$337.5\times3.5 = 1181.25$

$1181.25\times4.5 = 5315.625$

Here 337.5 will come in place of question mark.

Hence, option e is the correct answer.

b)Â 135

c)Â 95

d)Â 80

e)Â None of the above

**3)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

**Solution:**

$326-21\times11 = 326-231 = 95$

$95+20\times10 = 95+200 = 295$

$295-19\times9 = 295-171 = 124$

$124+18\times8 = 124+144 = 268$

$268-17\times7 = 268-119 = 149$

$149+16\times6 = 149+96 = 245$

Here 95 will come in place of question mark.

Hence, option c is the correct answer.

**Question 4:Â **6.2, 8.2, 12.7, 20.2, 30.7, ?

e)Â None of the above

**4)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

**Solution:**

$6.2+1.5\times2 = 6.2+3 = 8.2$

$8.2+1.5\times3 = 8.2+4.5 = 12.7$

$12.7+1.5\times5 = 12.7+7.5 = 20.2$

$20.2+1.5\times7 = 20.2+10.5 = 30.7$

$30.7+1.5\times11 = 30.7+16.5 = 47.2$

Here 47.2 will come in place of question mark.

Hence, option a is the correct answer.

**Question 5:Â **183, 1911, 580, 1580, 851, ?, 1020

c)Â 1347

d)Â 1363

e)Â None of the above

**5)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

**Solution:**

$183+12^{3} = 183+1728 = 1911$

$1911-11^{3} = 1911-1331 = 580$

$580+10^{3} = 580+1000 = 1580$

$1580-9^{3} = 1580-729 = 851$

$851+8^{3} = 851+512 = 1363$

$1363-7^{3} = 1363-343 = 1020$

Here 1363 will come in place of question mark.

Hence, option d is the correct answer.

**Instructions**

Identify the wrong numbers in series I and series II and answer the question accordingly.

series I : 149, 66.5, 130.5, 45, 694.5, 4536, 74304

a)Â 496.5

b)Â 475

c)Â 418.5

d)Â 362

e)Â 351

**6)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

**Solution:**

series I :

$149\times0.5-2^{3} = 74.5-8 = 66.5$

$66.5\times1+4^{3} = 66.5+64 = 130.5$

$130.5\times2-6^{3} = 261-216 = 45$

$45\times4+8^{3} = 180+512 = 692$

$692\times8-10^{3} = 5536-1000 = 4536$

$4536\times16+12^{3} = 72576+1728 = 74304$

Here 694.5 is the wrong number in the series.

series II :

$78+15\times7 = 78+105 = 183$

$183+16\times6 = 183+96 = 279$

$279+17\times5 = 279+85 = 364$

$364+18\times4 = 364+72 = 436$

$436+19\times3 = 436+57 = 493$

Here 276 is the wrong number in the series.

Difference between the wrong numbers of series I and II = 694.5-276

= 418.5

Hence, option c is the correct answer.

**Instructions**

Find out the missing number in each series and answer the questions as per the options.

**Question 7:Â **Series I : 3000, 1200, (A), 1152, 1843.2, 3686.4

Series II : (B), 960, 3765, 11385, 22665, 22785

Series III : 1220, 309, 150.5, 154.5, (C), 1224, 9788

What is the value of (A+B+C)?

a)Â 1375

b)Â 1445

c)Â 1480

d)Â 1465

e)Â 1360

**7)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

**Solution:**

Series I :

$3000\times0.4 = 1200$

$1200\times0.8 = 960$

$960\times1.2 = 1152$

$1152\times1.6 = 1843.2$

$1843.2\times2 = 3686.4$

Series II :

$180\times5+60 = 900+60 = 960$

$960\times4-75 = 3840-75 = 3765$

$3765\times3+90 = 11295+90 = 11385$

$11385\times2-105 = 22770-105 = 22665$

$22665\times1+120 = 22665+120 = 22785$

Series III :

$1220\times0.25+4 = 305+4 = 309$

$309\times0.5-4 = 154.5-4 = 150.5$

$150.5\times1+4 = 150.5+4 = 154.5$

$154.5\times2-4 = 309-4 = 305$

$305\times4+4 = 1220+4 = 1224$

$1224\times8-4 = 9792-4 = 9788$

value of (A+B+C) = 960+180+305

= 1445

Hence, option b is the correct answer.

**Question 8:Â **Series I : (P), 9484, 16324, 21220, 24580, 26764

Series II : 24, (Q), 960, 3000, 7560, 16464

a)Â R>Q>P

b)Â Q>R>P

c)Â R>P>Q

d)Â P>Q>R

e)Â P>Q=R

**8)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

**Solution:**

Series I :

$244 + 21^{3} – 21 = 244 + 9261 – 21 = 9484$

$9484 + 19^{3} – 19 = 9484 + 6859 – 19 = 16324$

$16324 + 17^{3} – 17 = 16324 + 4913 – 17 = 21220$

$21220 + 15^{3} – 15 = 21220 + 3375 – 15 = 24580$

$24580 + 13^{3} – 13 = 24580 + 2197 – 13 = 26764$

Series II :

$2^{5}-2^{3} = 32-8 = 24$

$3^{5}-3^{3} = 243-27 = 216$

$4^{5}-4^{3} = 1024-64 = 960$

$5^{5}-5^{3} = 3125-125 = 3000$

$6^{5}-6^{3} = 7776-216 = 7560$

$7^{5}-7^{3} = 16807-343 = 16464$

Series III :

10!-9! = 3628800-362880 = 3265920

9!-8! = 362880-40320 = 322560

8!-7! = 40320-5040 = 35280

7!-6! = 5040-720 = 4320

6!-5! = 720-120 = 600

5!-4! = 120-24 = 96

R>P>Q

600>244>216

Hence, option c is the correct answer.

**Instructions**

Study the following information carefully.

A series is given and certain conditions are given below for it. Observe the conditions carefully and answer the questions.

J, K, L, M, 4125, 4414, __, Y

$J = P^{2}+Q$

$K = (T-1)^{2}+J$

$L = S^{2}+K$

**Note ::
**(i) The value of Q is equal to the largest root of the equation $y^{2}-6y-3712 = 0$.

(ii) The difference between S and Q is 35.

(iii) LCM of P and T is 1184 where P is a prime number.

(iv) The value of S is not the multiple of 3.

**Question 9:Â **Which of the following statements is/are true?

(i) The value of M is the multiple of 7.

(ii) The difference between the values of P and T is five.

(iii) The immediate next term after Y in the given series has 91 as a factor.

a)Â Only (i)

b)Â Only (ii)

c)Â Only (iii)

d)Â Only (i) and (ii)

e)Â Only (ii) and (iii)

**9)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

**Solution:**

(i) The value of Q is equal to the largest root of the equation $y^{2}-6y-3712 = 0$.

$y^{2}-(64-58)y-3712 = 0$

$y^{2}-64y+58y-3712 = 0$

y(y-64)+58(y-64) = 0

(y-64) (y+58) = 0

y = -58, 64

largest root of the equation = **Q = 64
**(ii) The difference between S and Q is 35.

S-64 = 35 â‡’ S = 35+64 = 99

64-S = 35 â‡’ S = 64-35 = 29

(iv) The value of S is not the multiple of 3.

**S = 29**(99 is the multiple of 3. So it will not be possible.)

(iii) LCM of P and T is 1184 where P is a prime number.

PT = $37\times32$

**So P = 37 and T = 32**

$J = P^{2}+Q = 37^{2}+64 = 1369+64 = 1433$

$K = (T-1)^{2}+J = (32-1)^{2}+1433 = 31^{2}+1433 = 961+1433 = 2394$

$L = S^{2}+K = 29^{2}+2394 = 841+2394 = 3235$

From these three numbers, now we can get the pattern from which we can obtain the value of Y.

M = $23^{2}+3235 = 529+3235 = 3764$

$19^{2}+3764 = 361+3764 = 4125$

$17^{2}+4125 = 289+4125 = 4414$

$13^{2}+4414 = 169+4414 = 4583$

Y = $11^{2}+4583 = 121+4583 = 4704$

$7^{2}+4704 = 49+4704 = 4753$

Hence, option b is the correct answer.

**Question 10:Â **What is the value of â€˜Yâ€™?

a)Â 4754

b)Â 4736

c)Â 4762

d)Â 4708

e)Â None of the above

**10)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

**Solution:**

(i) The value of Q is equal to the largest root of the equation $y^{2}-6y-3712 = 0$.

$y^{2}-(64-58)y-3712 = 0$

$y^{2}-64y+58y-3712 = 0$

y(y-64)+58(y-64) = 0

(y-64) (y+58) = 0

y = -58, 64

largest root of the equation = **Q = 64
**(ii) The difference between S and Q is 35.

S-64 = 35 â‡’ S = 35+64 = 99

64-S = 35 â‡’ S = 64-35 = 29

(iv) The value of S is not the multiple of 3.

**S = 29**(99 is the multiple of 3. So it will not be possible.)

(iii) LCM of P and T is 1184 where P is a prime number.

PT = $37\times32$

**So P = 37 and T = 32**

$J = P^{2}+Q = 37^{2}+64 = 1369+64 = 1433$

$K = (T-1)^{2}+J = (32-1)^{2}+1433 = 31^{2}+1433 = 961+1433 = 2394$

$L = S^{2}+K = 29^{2}+2394 = 841+2394 = 3235$

From these three numbers, now we can get the pattern from which we can obtain the value of Y.

M = $23^{2}+3235 = 529+3235 = 3764$

$19^{2}+3764 = 361+3764 = 4125$

$17^{2}+4125 = 289+4125 = 4414$

$13^{2}+4414 = 169+4414 = 4583$

Y = $11^{2}+4583 = 121+4583 = 4704$

Hence, option e is the correct answer.

**Instructions**

b)Â Only (ii) and (iii)

c)Â Only (i) and (ii)

d)Â Only (ii)

e)Â Only (iii)

**11)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

**Solution:**

**Series I
**469 + 10! = 469 + 3628800 = 3629269

3629269 – 9! = 3629269 – 362880 = 3266389

3266389 + 8! = 3266389 + 40320 = 3306709

3306709 – 7! = 3306709 – 5040 = 3301669

3301669 + 6! = 3301669 + 720 = 3302389

3302389 – 5! = 3302389 – 120 = 3302269

Here 3302389 is the missing number in the given series.

**Series II
**$109+2^{4} = 109+16 = 125$

$125+3^{4} = 125+81 = 206$

$206+5^{4} = 206+625 = 831$

$831+7^{4} = 831+2401 = 3232$

$3232+11^{4} = 3232+14641 = 17873$

$17873+13^{4} = 17873+28561 = 46434$

Here 46434 is the missing number in the given series.

Hence, option e is the correct answer.

**Instructions**

Identify the wrong number in Series I and correct that number which will be the value of â€˜Aâ€™. In Series II, find out the missing value in place question mark which will be the value of â€˜Bâ€™.

Series I :: 526, 275.5, 39.75, 101.75, 167.5, 686,Â 5484

Series II :: 1248, 1591, 1898, 2171, ?, 2623

**Note :: both the series are following a different pattern.
**

**Question 12:Â **Find out the difference between the values of â€˜Aâ€™ and â€˜Bâ€™.

a)Â 1758.25

b)Â 2712.25

c)Â 1936.25

d)Â 2374.25

e)Â None of the above

**12)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

**Solution:**

**Series I
**$526\times0.25 + 144 = 131.5+144 = 275.5$

$275.5\times0.5 – 100 = 137.75-100 = 37.75$

$37.75\times1 + 64 = 37.75+64 = 101.75$

$101.75\times2 – 36 = 203.5-36 = 167.5$

$167.5\times4 + 16 = 670+16 = 686$

$686\times8 – 4 = 5488-4 = 5484$

Here 37.75 should come instead of 39.75 to make the series correct. So A = 37.75

**Series II**

$1248+19^{2}-18 = 1248+361-18 = 1591$

$1591+18^{2}-17 = 1591+324-17 = 1898$

$1898+17^{2}-16 = 1898+289-16 = 2171$

$2171+16^{2}-15 = 2171+256-15 = 2412$

$2412+15^{2}-14 = 2412+225-14 = 2623$

The missing number is 2412.

difference between the values of â€˜Aâ€™ and â€˜Bâ€™ = 2412-37.75

= 2374.25

Hence, option d is the correct answer.

$11^{3}-11^{2} = 1331-121 = 1210$

$9^{3}-9^{2} = 729-81 = 648$

$7^{3}-7^{2} = 343-49 = 294$

$5^{3}-5^{2} = 125-25 = 100$

Here 272 is the wrong number.

Hence, option c is the correct answer.

c)Â 1378

d)Â 2090

e)Â 1578

**15)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

**Solution:**

$1186+13\times14 = 1186+182 = 1368$

$1368+14\times15 = 1368+210 = 1578$

$1578+15\times16 = 1578+240 = 1818$

$1818+16\times17 = 1818+272 = 2090$

$2090+17\times18 = 2090+306 = 2396$

Here 1378 is the wrong number.

Hence, option c is the correct answer.

d)Â 164

e)Â 1124

**16)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

**Solution:**

$164+2^{4} = 164+16 = 180$

$180-4^{4} = 180-256 = -76$

$-76+6^{4} = -76+1296 = 1220$

$1220-8^{4} = 1220-4096 = -2876$

$-2876+10^{4} = -2876+10000 = 7124$

$7124-12^{4} = 7124-20736 = -13612$

Here 1124 is the wrong number.

Hence, option e is the correct answer.
