Q:

311, 230, 294, ?, 281, 256

 

What will come in place of the question mark (?) in the above number series?

A) 240 B) 245
C) 244 D) 246

Answer:   B) 245



Explanation:

Given 311   230   294   ?   281   256

 

311 - (9x9) = 230

 

230 + (8x8) = 294

 

294 - (7x7) = 245

 

245 + (6x6) = 281

 

281 - (5x5) = 256

 

Hence, the missing number in the given series is 245.

Q:

Find the odd man out in the following number series?

71, 88, 113, 150, 203, 277

A) 277 B) 203
C) 150 D) 113
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 277

Explanation:

The given number series is 

 

71      88       113       150       203          277

   +17    +25       +37      +53        +74

        +8      +12        +16       +21

            +4          +4         +5

 

The series should be  71  88  112   150    203   276 i.e, the differences of the difference should be +4.

 

Hence, the odd man in the given series is 277.

Find the next number in the following number series?

11, 13, 30, 96, ?

A) 264 B) 392
C) 412 D) 459
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 392

Explanation:

The given number series 11, 13, 30, 96, ? follows a pattern that,

11

11 x 1 + 2 = 13

13 x 2 + 4 = 30

30 x 3 + 6 = 96

96 x 4 + 8 = 392

 

Hence, the next number in the given series is 392.

Q:

Find the odd number out of the following number series?

2 4 8 11.5 18.25 28.375

A) 18.25 B) 28.375
C) 11.5 D) 8
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 8

Explanation:

Given number series follows a pattern that,

2

2 x 1.5 + 1 = 4

4 x 1.5 + 1 = 7 (not equal to 8)

7 x 1.5 + 1 = 11.5

11.5 x 1.5 + 1 = 18.25

18.25 x 1.5 + 1 = 28.375

 

Hence, the odd number in the given number series is 8.

Q:

Find the odd man out in the following number series?

5, 4, 9, 32, 273

A) 4 B) 9
C) 32 D) 273
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 32

Explanation:

The given number series follows 5, 4, 9, 32, 308 pattern that

 

5

5 x 1 - 1 = 4

4 x 3 - 3 = 9

9 x 5 - 5 = 40 (not equals to 32)

40 x 7 - 7 = 273

 

Hence, the odd man in the given number series is 32.

Q:

Find the next number in the sequence?

28, 16, 28, 76, 274

A) 1233 B) 1243
C) 1256 D) 1276
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 1243

Explanation:

Given number sequence is 28, 16, 28, 76, 274

Here the sequence follows a pattern that

28

28 x 0.5 + 2 = 14 + 2 = 16

16 x 1.5 + 4 = 24 + 4 = 28

28 x 2.5 + 6 = 70 + 6 = 76

76 x 3.5 + 8 = 266 + 8 = 274

274 x 4.5 + 10 = 1233 + 10 = 1243

 

Hence, the next number in the given number sequence is 1243.

Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 10

Explanation:

Here the given number series is 6, 3, 3, 4.5, 10

The odd one in the given series is 10

The pattern it follows is

6

6 x 0.5 = 3

3 x  1  = 3

3 x 1.5 = 4.5

4.5 x 2 = 9

 

Hence, the odd number is 10.

Q:

Which is the next number in the sequence:

1, 3, 6, 11, 20, 37, ??

A) 49 B) 56
C) 64 D) 70
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 70

Explanation:

Here the given series is 1, 3, 6, 11, 20, 37, ??,

and the logic behind the series is

1 x 2 + 1 = 3

3 x 2 + 0 = 6

6 x 2 + (-1) = 11

11 x 2 + (-2) = 20

20 x 2 + (-3) = 37

37 x 2 + (-4) = 70

 

Hence, the next number in the given series is 70.

Q:

What is the next number in the following number series

3, 5, 8, 15, 28, 51, ?

A) 98 B) 102
C) 87 D) 79
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 98

Explanation:

The given number series is 

3, 5, 8, 15, 28, 51, ?

Here the pattern it follows is

3

3 + 2 = 5 ( add prime number less than 3 i.e, 2)

5 + 3 = 8 (3 is prime number less than 5)

8 + 7 = 15 (7 is prime number less than 8)

15 + 13 = 28 (13 is prime number less than 15)

28 + 23 = 51 (23 is prime number less than 28)

51 + 47 = 98 (47 is prime number less than 51)

 

Hence, the next number in the given number series is 98.
