Q:

Find the odd one in the number series given below ?

17, 9, 10, 18.5, 35, 90

A) 9 B) 10
C) 18.5 D) 90

Answer:   C) 18.5



Explanation:

The given series pattern follows

 

17       9       10       18.5       35       90

 

× 0.5 + 0.5,   × 1 + 1,   × 1.5 + 1.5,   × 2 + 2,   × 2.5 + 2.5

 

So here 

 

17x0.5 + 0.5 = 9

 

9x1 + 1 = 10

 

10x1.5 + 1.5 = 16.5

 

16.5x2 + 2 = 35

 

35x2.5 + 2.5 = 90

 

Here the odd man in the given series is 18.5

Q:

Find the next number in the number series?

6, 6, 9, 18, 45, ?

A) 87 B) 99.75
C) 115.5 D) 135
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 135

Explanation:

The given number series is 6, 6, 9, 18, 45, ?

Here the series follows a pattern that,

6 x 1 = 6

6 x 1.5 = 9

9 x 2 = 18

18 x 2.5 = 45

45 x 3 = 135

 

Hence, the next number in the given number series is 135.

Find the odd one out of the following number series?

56, 64, 48, 90, 16, 144

 

A) 48 B) 64
C) 90 D) 16
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 90

Explanation:

The given number series follows a pattern that,

56

56 + 8 = 64

64 - 16 = 48

48 + 32 = 80 (Not equal to 90)

80 - 64 = 16

16 + 128 = 144 

 

Hence, the odd number in the given number series is 90.

A) 412 B) 415
C) 418 D) 420
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 420

Explanation:

The given number series 410, 409, 413, 404, ? , follows a pattern that

The given number series follows a pattern that,

9

9 x 0.5 + 0.5 = 5

5 x 1 + 1 = 6

6 x 2 + 2 = 14

14 x 4 + 4 = 60 (not equals to 56)

60 x 8 + 8 = 488.

 

Hence, the odd one in the given number series is 56.

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.

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
