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.
