Number Series Questions: Example

Let’s Understand this topic better with Example:

Directions (1-10) : In each of these questions a number series is given. In each series only one number series is given. In each series only one number is wrong. Find out the wrong number.

Q1. 1     3     10     36     152     760     4632

(a) 3

(b) 36

(c) 4632

(d) 760

(e) 152

S1. Ans.(d)

Sol. The number should be 770 in place of 760 because X1+2, x2+2, x3+3 and so on

Q2.   12,     12,     18,     45,     180,     1170,     ?

(a) 12285

(b) 10530

(c) 11700

(d) 12870

(e) 9945

S2. Ans.(a)

Sol. The pattern is ×1.0, ×1.5, ×(1 + 1.5), ×(1.5 + 2.5), ×(2.5 + 4), ×(4 + 6.5)

∴ ? = 10.5 × 1170

? = 12285

Q3.  67,      1091,       835,       899,      883,      ?

(a) 889

(b) 887

(c) 883

(d) 894

(e) 896

S3. Ans(b)

Sol. Pattern of series – 67 + 45 = 1091

1091 – 4= 835

835 + 43 = 899

899 – 42 = 883

? = 883 + 41 = 887

Q. In each of the following questions a number series is given. After the series a number is given followed by (a), (b), (c), (d) and (e). You have to complete the series starting with the number given, following the sequence of the original series and answer the questions that follow the series.

Q6. 12,  30,  120,  460,  1368,  2730

16  (a)   (b)     (c)      (d)      (e)

What will come in place of (d) ?

(a) 1384

(b) 2642

(c) 2808

(d) 1988

(e) None of these

S6. Ans. (c)

Sol. The given series is based on the following pattern:

30 = 12 × 6 – 7 × 6

120 = 30 × 5 – 6 × 5

460 = 120 × 4 – 5 × 4

1368 = 460 × 3 – 4 × 3

2730 = 1368 × 2 – 3 × 2

Similarly,

(a) = 16 × 6 – 7 × 6 = 96 – 42 = 54

(b) = 54 × 5 – 6 × 5 = 240

(c) = 240 × 4 – 5 × 4 = 940

(d) = 940 × 3 – 4 × 3 = 2808

Hence, 2808 will come in place of (d).
