Answer: Option D

Explanation:

(Logic: 3*2+1=7 12*2+2=26
7*2+1=15 26*2+2=54)

ShortCut By :: TejaSri

Alternate:

(3,7,15) (12,26,b)

7-3=4   ,   15-7=8=(4*2)

like so,

26-12=14   ,   b-26=14*2

b=28+26=54

9 / 252

 Find the next term of the series:-
7,14,55,110,?

Answer: Option A

Explanation:

7 + 7 = 14, and reverse of 14 is 41
Now, 41+14=55
Similarly,
Reverse of 55 is 55.
Thus, 55 +55=110.
Now, reverse of 110 is 011
so the next term is 110+011=121.

10 / 252

 Find the wrong number in the given series.
3, 4, 10, 32, 136, 685, 4116

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

The sequence is as follows :

2nd term = (1st term 1) * 1

3rd term = (2nd term 1) * 2

4th term = (3rd term 1) * 3 and so on.

So, 32 is wrong and must be replaced by (10 1) * 3  i.e. 33.
