1. (4) The series is based on the following pattern:
11 = 2 × 3 + 5

38 = 11 × 4 - 6

197 = 38 × 5 + 7

1172 ≠ 197 × 6 - 8

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

2. (1) The series is based on the following pattern:

107 - 71 = 36 = 6²

71 - 46 = 25 = 5²

46 - 30 = 16 = 4²

30 - 21 = 9 = 3²

21 - 19 = 2 ≠ 2²

Hence 19 should be replaced by 17 for which 21 - 17 = 2²

3. (4) The series is based on the following pattern:

16 = 9 + 7

2. (1) The series is based on the following pattern:

107 - 71 = 36 = 6²

71 - 46 = 25 = 5²

46 - 30 = 16 = 4²

30 - 21 = 9 = 3²

21 - 19 = 2 ≠ 2²

Hence 19 should be replaced by 17 for which 21 - 17 = 2²

3. (4) The series is based on the following pattern:

16 = 9 + 7

25 = 16 + 9

41 = 25 + 16

68 ≠ 41 + 25

4. (3) The series is based on the following pattern:

7. (5) The given series is based on the following pattern:

Hence, 10 will come in place of question mark.

8. (2) The given series is based on the following pattern:

5 × 1 + (1)² = 6

6 × 2 + (2)² = 16

16 × 3 + (3)² = 57

57 × 4 + (4)² = 244

Hence, 16 will come in place of question mark.

9. (1) The given series is based on the following patterns.

Hence, 34 will come in place of the question mark.

10. (4) The given series is based on the following pattern:

5 × 2 + 1 = 11

11 × 2 + 3 = 25

25 × 2 + 5 = 55

55 × 2 + 7 = 117

11. (3) The given series is based on the following pattern:

30 = 12 × 6 - 7 × 6

120 = 30 × 5 - 6 × 5

460 = 120 × 4 - 5 × 4

1368 = 460 × 3 - 4 × 3

2730 = 1368 × 2 - 3 × 2

Similarly,

(a) = 16 × 6 - 7 × 6 = 96 - 42 = 54

(b) = 54 × 5 - 6 × 5 = 240

(c) = 240 × 4 - 5 × 4 = 940

(d) = 940 × 3 - 4 × 3 = 2808

Hence, 2808 will come in place of (d).

12. (5) The given series is based on the following pattern:

Hence, 1863 will come in place of (e).

13. (2) The given series is based on the following pattern:

Hence, 14514.5 will come in place of (c).

14. (1) The given series is based on the following pattern :

Hence, 284 will come in place of(d).

15. (4) The given series is based on the following pattern:

Hence, 97.5 will come in place of (c).

16. (1) The given series is based on the following pattern :

1 = 1

? = 2

27 = 3

64 = 4

125 = 5

Hence, 8 will come in place of the question mark.

17. (5) The given series is based on the following pattern :

25 = 5²

16 = 4²

? = 3² = 9

4 = 2² and

1 = 1²

Hence, 9 will come in place of the question mark,

18. (1) The given series Is based on the following pattern:

1 × 2 + 2 × 2 = 6

6 × 4 + 4 × 3 = 36

36 × 6 + 6 × 4 = 240

240 × 8 + 8 × 5 = 1960

1960 × 10 + 10 × 6 = 19660
