Q10. 5 , 7,  10,  36, 136,  690
         2 ,(1), (2) , (3),  (4),  (5)
What will come in place of (4)?
(a) 310 
(b) 64
(c) 110
(d) 330
Ans.(b)
Sol.  The series is based on the following pattern:
5 × 1 + 2 = 7
7 × 2 – 4 = 10
10 × 3 + 6 = 36
36 × 4 – 8 = 136
136 × 5 + 10 = 690
Similarly, the new series is as follows:
2 × 1 + 2 = 4 …. (1)
4 × 2 – 4 = 4 …. (2)
4 × 3 + 6 = 18 …. (3)
18 × 4 – 8 = 64 …. (4)
64 × 5 +10 = 330 ….(5)
Therefore, the number 64 will come in place of (4).

8 × 0.5 = 4,
4 × 1.5 = 6,
6 × 2.5 = 15,
15 × 3.5 = 52.6,
52.5 × 4.5 = 236.25
Similarly,
4 × 0.5 = 2 …. (1)
2 × 1.5 = 3 …. (2)
3 × 2.5 = 7.5 …. (3)
7.5 × 3.5 = 26.25 . …(4)
Therefore, the number 7.5 will come in place of (3)

(d) Data inadequate 
Ans.(c)
Sol.  how many goals scored = 5 3 9 7 …(i)
many more matches = 9 8 2 …(ii)
he scored five = 1 6 3 …(iii)
