Q:

What is the next number in this series ? 

4, 6, 12, 18, 30, 42, 60, ?

A) 71 B) 72
C) 73 D) 69

Answer:   B) 72



Explanation:

With close observation, you will note that each number in the list is in the middle of two prime numbers. Thus:

4 is in the middle of 3 and 5, 6 is in the middle of 5 and 7, 12 is in the middle of 11 and 13, 18 is in the middle of 17 and 19, 30 is in the middle of 29 and 31. 42 is in the middle of 41 and 43, 60 is in the middle of 59 and 61.

Therefore, the next number would be the one that is in the middle of the next two prime numbers, which is 72 (which is in the middle of 71 and 73).

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.

C) 14 D) 5
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 56

Explanation:

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.

 

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