Solutions

S1. Ans.(b)Sol. Sum of the digits of each term is added to it to obtain the next term.4+2 = 6 + 42 = 484+8 = 12 + 48 = 606+0 = 6 + 60 = 666+6 = 12 + 66 = 787+8 = 15 + 78 = 939+3 = 12 + 93 = 105
S2. Ans.(c)Sol. Successively 11, 9, 7, … is subtracted to obtain the next term.
S3. Ans.(a)Sol. The terms are successively multiplied by 5, 6, 7, …..
S4. Ans.(d)Sol. 40 32 72 1230 24 54 954 ? 90 15
First row: 40+32= 72; 72×1/6 = 12Second row: 30+24 = 54; 54×1/6 = 9Third row: 54+? = 90; 90-54 = 36∴ Missing number is 36.
S5. Ans.(c)Sol. 25 15 40 865 25 90 ?45 15 60 12
First row: 25+15 = 40; 40×1/5 = 8Second row: 65+25 = 90; 90×1/5 = 18Third row: 45+15 = 60; 60×1/5 = 12∴ Missing number is 18
S6. Ans.(b)Sol. In each row, (i) multiply the second term by 2. (ii) divide the first term by 2 then add the (i) product + (ii) quotient to obtain the third term.11×2+ (6÷2) = 256×2+ (8÷2) = 165×2+(12÷2)= 16
S7. Ans.(c)Sol. (14)²= 196; 196÷2 = 98; 98-14 = 84;(10)²= 100; 100÷2 = 50; 50-10 = 40;(12)²= 144; 144÷2 = 72; 72-12 = 60;(16)²= 256; 256÷2 = 128; 128-16 = 112.Therefore, missing number is 112.
S8. Ans.(a)Sol. 5+4= 9; 5×4= 20;3+8= 11; 3×8= 24;9+4= 13;  9×4= 36.∴ Missing number is 36.
S9. Ans.(b)Sol. 6+7= 13, 6×7= 42;4+9= 13, 4×9= 36;8+3= 11,  8×3= 24.∴ Missing term is 24.
S10. Ans.(a)Sol. (3×5) +1= 16(16×5)+1= 81(81×5)+1= 406(406×5)+1= 2031
