__SOLUTIONS:__**1.S1. Ans.(d)**

Sol. The series is based on the following pattern:

11 = 2 × 3 + 5

38 = 11 × 4 - 6

197 = 38 × 5 + 7

1172 ≠ 197 × 6 - 8

1172 is wrong and it should be replaced by 197 × 6 - 8 = 1174

S2. Ans.(a)

Sol. The series is based on the following pattern:

107 - 71 = 36

71 - 46 = 25

46 - 30 = 16

30 - 21 = 9

21 - 19 = 2≠4

19 should be replaced by 17 for which 21 - 17 = 4

S3. Ans.(d)

Sol. The series is based on the following pattern:

16 = 9 + 7

25 = 16 + 9

41 = 25 + 16

68 ≠ 41 + 25

68 should be replaced by 66.

S4. Ans.(c)

Sol. The series is based on the following pattern: ×0.5,×1.5,×2.5,×3.5,×4.5

Obviously, 3.5 Is the wrong number which should be replaced by 3.

S5. Ans.(b)

Sol. The series is based on the following pattern: ×0.25,×0.5,×0.75,×1,×1.25

Obviously, 1.75 is the wrong number which should be replaced by 1.5.

S6. Ans.(b)

Sol. The given series is based on the following pattern :

×6+1,×5+8,×4+27,×3+64,×2+125

Similarly, 5×6+1=31

31×5+8=163

Hence, 163 will come in place of (b).

S7. Ans.(a)

Sol. The given series is based on the following pattern

13 = 4 × 1 + 1 × 9

40 = 13 × 2 + 2 × 7

135 = 40 × 3 + 3 × 5

552 = 135 × 4 + 4 × 3

2765 = 552 × 5 + 5 × 1

Similarly,

(a) = 2 × l + 1 × 9 = 11

(b) = 11 × 2 + 2 × 7 = 36

(c) = 36 × 3 + 3 × 5 = 123

Hence, 123 will come in place of (c).

S8. Ans.(c)

Sol. The given series is based on the following pattern: ×2+2,÷2-2,×2+2,÷2-

2………..

Hence, 4 will come in place of (d).

S9. Ans.(d)

Sol. The given series is based on the following pattern :

×2+7,×2+11,×2+13,×2+17,×2+19

(7, 11, 13, 17, 19, ..... are consecutive prime numbers)

Hence, 159 will come in place of (d).

S10. Ans.(c)

Sol. The given series is based on the following pattern : ×0.5,×1.5,×2.5…….

Hence, 22.5 will come in place of (c).

S11. Ans.(c)

Sol. The given number series is based on the following pattern :

13 × 1 + 1 = 14

14 × 2 + 2 = 30

30 × 3 + 3 = 93

93 × 4 + 4 = 376

376 × 5 + 5 = 1885

? = 1885 × 6 + 6 = 11316

Hence, number 11316 will replace the question mark.

S12. Ans.(b)

Sol. The given series is based on the following pattern :×1.5,×1.5,……..

S13. Ans.(d)

Sol. The given series is based on the following pattern : ×0.6,×0.6……..

S14. Ans.(a)

Sol. The given series is based on the following pattern : ×0.5,×1,×1.5,×2,×2.5…….

S15. Ans.(e)

Sol.

705 + 1 × 23 = 728

728 + 2 × 23 = 774

774 + 3 × 23 = 843

843 + 4 × 23 = 935

935 + 5 × 23 = 1050

? = 1050 + 6 × 23 = 1050 + 138 = 1188
