Solutions for Sequence and Series Questions for SBI Clerk:

Solutions:

The difference between consecutive terms of the series is doubling as given below.
For example, 16-12 = 4
24-16 = 8
40-24 = 16
So, the number to come next is 40+32 = 72

Each term of the number series is one more than double the previous number.
For example, 19 = 2*9 + 1
39 = 2*19 + 1
79 = 2*39 + 1
So, the number to come next is 2*79 + 1 = 159

The difference between consecutive terms of the number series are squares of odd natural
numbers.
For example, 17-8 = 9
42-17 = 25
91-42 = 49
Hence, the number to come next is 91+81 = 172

The number series given above follows the pattern described below.
For example, 8 = 7*1 + 1
18 = 8*2 + 2
57 = 18*3 + 3
So, the number to come next is 57*4 + 4 = 232. As this is not given in the options given, the answer is option (e)

Each number in the given series is one fourth the previous number.
For example, 960 = 3840/4
240 = 960/4
60 = 240/4
So, the number to come next is 60/4 = 15

The numbers given in the series follow the pattern described below
6 = 4*1 + 2
16 = 6*2 + 4
54 = 16*3 + 6
Hence, the number to come next will be 54*4 + 8 = 224

Each term in the series follows the pattern given below.
39 = 5*8 – 1
272 = 39*7 – 1
1631 = 272*6 – 1
Hence, the next term in the series will be 1631*5 – 1 = 8154

Each term in the series is equal to the previous number divided by 4.
For example, 768 = 192*4
192 = 48*4
48 = 12*4
Hence, the next number in the series will be 12/4 = 3

The difference between consecutive terms of the series are perfect squares of even natural
numbers.
For example, 16 – 12 = 4
32 – 16 = 16
68 – 32 = 36
Hence, the next number will be 68 + 64 = 132
