**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (B)**

The differences between consecutive terms are 24, 72, 216, 648. Hence, the differences are increasing in an exponential manner. Thus, the series must be a Geometric Progression. a=12 and r=36/12 = 3.

Thus, the terms of the series are 12, 12*3, $12*3^2$, $12*3^3$, $12*3^4$. Thus, the next term of the series = 972 * 3 = 2916.

**2) Answer (D)**

The differences between consecutive terms are 1, 4 and 14, 23 and 37. We see that terms of the series are appearing in the list of differences. Hence, the series is formed by adding previous terms of the series.

i.e. 4+5=9, 5+9=14, 9+14=23, 14+23=37, 23+37=60 and 37+60=97.

Hence, the missing number is 14.

**3) Answer (B)**

The differences between consecutive terms is 16-5=11, 27-16=11, 38-27-11, 49-38=11 and 60-49=11. Hence, the difference is a constant. Thus, the series is an Arithmetic Progression.

The next number in the series would be 60+11=71.

**4) Answer (B)**

The given series is the list of prime numbers. The next prime number after 17 is 19.

**5) Answer (A)**

The given series is of the form n(n+2) = 1*3, 2*4, 3*5, 4*6 and so on.

The next term would be 7*9 = 63

**6) Answer (C)**

The given terms are of the format $n^2-1$.

3 =$2^2-1$

8 =$3^2-1$

15 =$4^2-1$

24 =$5^2-1$

35 =$6^2-1$

and so on

The next term would be $10^2-1 = 99$

**7) Answer (B)**

The difference of two consecutive terms are in AP.

2-1 = 1, 4-2 = 2, 7-4 = 3, 11-7 = 4, 16-11 = 5, 22-16 = 6, 29-22 = 7, 37-29 = 8, 46-37 = 9

x-46 = 10

x = 56

**8) Answer (C)**

11+4 = 15 ; 15+5 = 20 ; 20+6 = 26 ; 26+7 = 33; 33+8 = 41

**9) Answer (B)**

10+7 = 17; 17+8 = 25 ; 25+9 = 34 ; 34+10 = 44 ; 44+11 = 55

**10) Answer (B)**

981 = $31^2$

1089 = $33^2$

1225 = $35^2$

1369 = $37^2$

1521 = $39^2$

**11) Answer (A)**

7 – 3 = 4

13 – 7 = 6

21 – 13 = 8

x – 21 = 10

=> x = 31

**12) Answer (D)**

19*4+3 = 79 ; 79*4+3 = 319; 319*4+4 = 1279 ; 1279*4+3 = 5119

**13) Answer (A)**

First, third and 5th letter are forming an A.P. with the common difference of 3

Second, third and sixth letter are also forming an A.P. with the common difference of 2

Hence, answer will be “a”

**14) Answer (D)**

9*5+5 = 50 ; 50*5+5= 255 ; 255*5+5 = 1280 ; 1280*5+5 = 6405, 6405*5+5=32030

**15) Answer (A)**

11+7=18 ; 18+10=28 ; 28+13=41 ;41+16 = 57, 57+19=76
