Q:

Find the missing number in the given series ?

15, 51, 216, 1100, ?, 46452

A) 5660 B) 6560
C) 6750 D) 6630
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 6630

Explanation:

Let first no. be "k" and multiple be "l"...start value of y with 3
then,
[(k x y) + {l x (l-1)}]
Thus, we get

15 x 3 + 3 x 2 = 51
51 x 4 + 4 x 3 = 216
216 x 5 + 5 x 4 = 1100
1100 x 6 + 6 x 5 = 6630
6630 x 7 + 7 x 6 = 46452

Therefore, the missing number is 6630.

Q:

Find the missing term in the following series ?

10000, 11000, 9900, 10890, ?, 10781

A) 10423 B) 9801
C) 10241 D) 9712
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 9801

Explanation:

Clearly, alternatively we add and subtract 10% of a term to obtain the next term of the series.
Thus, 10000 + (10% of 10000)= 11000;
11000 - (10% of 11000) = 9900;
 9900 + (10% of 9900)  = 10890;
10890 - (10% of 10890) = 9801.
 9801 + (10% of 9801)  = 9801+980 = 10781.
So, missing term = 10890- (10% of 10890)= 9801.

Q:

Which Number would come in place of the underline mark in the series.

3, 9, 21, ___ , 93

A) 39 B) 45
C) 48 D) 51
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 45

Explanation:

First difference is 6 and second is 12. But if we take third as 18, then fourth difference will be 24. Then 93 can not be the last term.

So we have to take the difference as 6, 12, 24 and 48. 

So Answer is 21+24 = 45

A) 9 B) 12
C) 16 D) 8
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 9

The given sequence is a combination of three series:
i)1st, 4th, 7th terms i.e, 2, 4, 9
ii)2nd, 5th, 8th terms i.e, 3, 6, 12
iii)3rd, 6th, 9th terms i.e, 4, 8, 16
In each one of i, ii, iii, each term is twice the preceding term.
So, 9 is wrong and must be replaced by (4*2) = 8
