एक श्रंखला दी गई है जिसमें एक टर्म अज्ञात हैं आपको दिए गए विकल्पों में से उस विकल्प का चयन करना है जो इस श्रंखला को पूरा करेगा?
Q1. 2, 5, 9, 19, 37 ?
S1. Ans. (b):
Sol. Clearly, we have: 2 x 2 + 1= 5, 5 x 2 -1 = 9, 9 x 2 + 1 = 19, 19 x 2 -1 = 37,
So, missing term = 37 x 2 + 1 =75.
Q2. 22,24, 28, ?, 52, 84
(a) 36
(b) 38
(c) 42
(d) 46
S2. Ans. (a)
Sol. The pattern is +2, +4, +8, +16
So, missing term = 28 + 8 = 36.
Q3. 1, 4, 27, 16, ?, 36, 343
(a) 25
(b) 87
(c) 120
S3. Ans. (d)

Q4. 1/2, 3/4, 5/8, 7/16, ?
(a) 9/32
S4. Ans. (a)
Sol. Clearly, the numerators of the fractions in the given sequence form the series 1, 3, 5,
7, in which each term is obtained by adding 2 to the previous term.The
denominators of the fractions form the series 2, 4, 8, 16, i.e. 21, 22, 23,
24.So, the numerator of the fractions will be (7 +2) i.e. 9 and the denominator
will be 25 i.e. 32. Thus, the next term is 9/32.
Q5. 1,9, 25, 49, ?, 121
