ANSWERS and SOLUTION :
1( C)Explanation :
3
3 × 2 + 2 = 8
8 × 2 + 2 = 18
18 × 2 + 2 = 38
38 × 2 + 2 = 78
78 × 2 + 2 = 158
158 × 2 + 2 = 318
Hence, 316 is wrong and 318 should have come in place of that

2(B)Explanation:
The pattern is 2^3, 3^3, 4^3, 5^3, 6^3, 7^3. But, 100 is not a perfect cube.

3( C)Explanation :
5 × 1 + 1 = 6
6 × 2 + 2 = 14
14 × 3 + 3 = 45
45 × 4 + 4 = 184
184 × 5 + 5 = 925
925 × 6 + 6 = 5556
Hence, it is clear that 184 should have come instead of 185

4(B)Explanation:
In each number except 427, the middle digit is the sum of other two.

5(B)Explanation :
Alternatively 22 is added and 15 is subtracted from the terms. Hence, 271 is wrong
241
241 + 22 = 263
263 – 15 = 248
248 + 22 = 270
270 – 15 = 255
255 + 22 = 277
277 – 15 = 262

6(B)Explanation:
In each number except 383, the product of first and third digits is the middle one.

7(B)Explanation :
Alternatively 2 and 4 are multiplied with the previous terms
5
5 × 2 = 10
10 × 4 = 40
40 × 2 = 80
80 × 4 = 320
320 × 2 = 640
640 × 4 = 2560
Hence, 81 is wrong. 80 should have come in place of 81.

8( A)Explanation:
In each number except 751, the difference of third and first digit is the middle one.

9( A)Explanation :
3576
(3576-8)/2 = 1784
(1784-8)/2 = 888
(888-8)/2 = 440
(440-8)/2 = 216
(216-8)/2 = 104
(104-8)/2 = 48
Hence, 105 is wrong. 104 should have come in place of 105

10(B)Explanation :
30
30 – 35 = -5
-5 – 40 = -45
-45 – 45 = -90
-90 – 50 = -140
-140 – 55 = -195
-195 – 60 = -255
Hence, -145 is wrong. -140 should have come in place of -145
