‘R’ = 57, 66, 75, 89, 98
‘E’ = 56, 65, 79, 88, 97

Q14. In this question, a number series is given with one term missing. Choose the correct alternative that will continue the same pattern.
1, 4, 11, 22, (?)
(a) 26
(b) 37
(c) 40
(d) 25
Ans.(b)
Sol.  The pattern is +3, +7, +11, +15

a,y,c,w,e,u, (?), (?)
(a) I q
(b) f t
(c) g k
(d) g s
Ans.(d)
Sol.  The series divided into two sequence:
I-a, c, e II- y, w, u
