Answers with solution:



1.    (a): Pattern of series: acac/abab/acac/abab/acac.


2.    (c): Pattern of series: Wax/Wax/Wax/Wax/Wax.


3.    (b): Pattern of series: abba/abba/abba.


4.    (c): Pattern of series: rtsr/rtsr/rtsr/rtsr.


5.    (a): Pattern of series: tst/tst/tst/tst


6.    (b): The pattern is x3, + 4, x5, +6, x 7 … So, missing term = 1127 + 8 = 1135.


7.    (c): The pattern is +1, x1, +2, x2, +3, x3, +4, x4, +5. So, missing term = 13 x 3 = 39.


8.    (b):4=2*2, 18=3*6 , 48=4*12, 100=5*20, 180=6*30, 294=7*42
Similarly: 448=8*56


9.    (a): Pattern of series
   505,        528,     574,     643,     735,        (850)
             +23         +46          +69      +92       +115
10.   (a): Pattern of series:

33-5 =28, 28-4 = 24, 24-3 = 21, 21-2 = 19, 19-1 = 18,

    standing ahead of Arush and Aashi. Ashu is ahead of Arush, who in turn
    is ahead of Ashan. Aashi is ahead of Alsham and there is only one person
