**Solutions**

S1. Ans.(d)

Sol.

The pattern is as follows:

In the first column 2 × 1 +1 = 3;

In the second column 14 × 7 + 7 = 105;

Let the missing number be x

Then x × 9 + 9 = 117 or x = 12

Therefore, in third column, missing number = 12

S2. Ans.(c)

Sol.

The pattern is as follows:

In the first row 8 × 2 + 17 = 33;

In the second row 12 × 2 + 5 = 29

Therefore, in third row, missing number

= 10 × 2 + 13 = 33

S3. Ans.(b)
