**Directions (Q.1-5): In each of the following questions, one term in the number series is wrong. Find out the wrong term. **

** 1. 15, 16, 22, 29, 45, 70
**

**2.10, 14, 28, 32, 64, 68, 132**

The correct pattern is + 4, × 2, + 4, × 2, ……

So, 132 is wrong and must be replaced by (68 × 2) i.e. 136.

**3. 2, 6, 24, 96, 285, 568, 567
**

The correct pattern is × 6 – 6, × 5 – 5, × 4 – 4, …..

So, 24 is wrong and must be replaced by (6 × 5 – 5) i.e. 25.

**4. 3, 2, 8, 9, 13, 22, 18, 32, 23, 42
**

The given sequence is a combination of two series:

I. 3, 8, 13, 18, 23 and II. 2, 9, 22, 32, 42

The pattern in I is + 5, and the pattern in II is + 10.

So, in II, 9 is wrong and must be replaced by (2 + 10) i.e. 12.

**5. 0, 2, 3, 5, 8, 10, 15, 18, 24, 26, 35
**

The given sequence is a combination of two series:

I. 0, 3, 8, 15, 24, 35 and II. 2, 5, 10, 18, 26

The pattern in both I and II is + 3, + 5, + 7, + 9, ……

So, in II, 18 is wrong and must be replaced by (10 + 7) i.e. 17.

**Directions (Q.6-10): In each of the following questions, a letter-number series is given with one or more terms missing as shown by (?). Choose the missing term out of the given alternatives.**

**6. D-4, F-6, H-8, J-10, ?, ?
**

alphabet from the beginning.

**7. W-144, ?. S-100, Q-81, O-64
**

**8. 2, A, 9, B, 6, C, 13, D, ?
**

**9. N5V, K7T, ? E14P, B19N
**

**10. Find the term which does not fit into the series: **

**1CV, 5FU, 9IT, 15LS, 17OR
**

**Directions (Q.11-15): In each of the following letter series, some of the letters are missing which are given in that order as one of the alternatives below it. Choose the correct alternative.**

**11. a __ bc__ a __bcda__ccd__bcd__.**

**12. __acca__ccca__acccc__aaa.**

**13. __bcab__ca__ __ ca__ b __ a.**

**14. c __b__bccb__ __ __ c__abc__ __ ab.
**

**15. a__ c __abb__a __bc__bc__ab.**

Thus, the pattern abccab/bcaabc is repeated.
