**Answers & Solutions for Number Series Questions for SSC CGL PDF:**

**Solutions:**

1) Answer (D)

The numbers ‘2’ and ‘9’ are alternatively added.

6 + 2 = 8

8 + 9 = 17

17 + 2 = 19

19 + 9 = 28

28 + 2 = 30

30 + 9 = 39

=> Ans – (D)

**2) Answer (C)**

The pattern followed is :

219 – 8 = 211

211 – 7 = 204

204 – 6 = 198

198 – 5 = 193

193 – 4 = 189

=> Ans – (C)

**3) Answer (B)**

The pattern followed is :

63 + 9 = 72

72 + 9 = 81

81 + 9 = 90

90 + 9 = 99

99 + 9 = 108

=> Ans – (B)

**4) Answer (C)**

Consecutive even numbers are added.

41 + 2 = 43

43 + 4 = 47

47 + 6 = 53

53 + 8 = 61

=> Ans – (C)

**5) Answer (D)**

Expression : 124, 235, 346, 457, ?

The pattern followed is that each digit of the numbers forms consecutive natural numbers.

1st digit : 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5

2nd digit : 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 , 6

3rd digit : 4 , 5 , 6 , 7 , 8

Thus, missing number = 568

=> Ans – (D)

**6) Answer (C)**

The pattern followed is that multiples of 5 are added.

6 + 5 = 11

11 + 10 = 21

21 + 15 = 36

36 + 20 = 56

56 + 25 = 81

=> Ans – (C)

**7) Answer (A)**

Consecutive odd numbers starting from 5 are added.

2 + 5 = 7

7 + 7 = 14

14 + 9 = 23

23 + 11 = 34

34 + 13 = 47

=> Ans – (A)

**8) Answer (C)**

The pattern followed is :

14 + (14 – 1) = 27

27 + (27 – 2) = 52

52 + (52 – 3) = 101

101 + (101 – 4) = 198

198 + (198 – 5) = 391

=> Ans – (C)

**9) Answer (C)**

Consecutive odd numbers are added.

19 + 9 = 28

28 + 11 = 39

39 + 13 = 52

52 + 15 = 67

67 + 17 = 84

=> Ans – (C)

3 Ã— 2 = 6

6 Ã— 3 = 18

18 Ã— 4 = 72

72 Ã— 5 = 360

360 Ã— 6 = 2160
