| | | Asked In Infosys |

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.

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

A10

B32

C136

D4116

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.
