d) 51

The series from the right is 24 x 1, 24 x 3, 24 x 5, 24 x 7 and 24 x 9.

For example,
24 x 1 = 24
24 x 3 = 72
24 x 5 = 120
24 x 7 = 168
24 x 9 = 216

So, the wrong number is 163. The correct number is 24 x 7 = 168

5p + 4e = 13
9p + 5e = 19
solving for p, we get p = 1
e = 2
So, 6 pencils and 3 erasers cost
6 x 1 + 3 x 2 = 12

88935 can be written as 5929 x 15
5929 is the square of 77
