# Number Series Questions Quiz-4

1. What should come in place of the question mark (?) in the following number series?
2 5 13 28 52 87 ?
A. 153
B. 145
C. 136
D. 122
E. None of these

E. None of these

The series is generated in the following manner:
2 + (22– 1) =5, 5 + (32– 1) =13, 13 + (42– 1) =28, 28 + (52– 1) =52, 52 + (62– 1) =87
So the next term would be 87 + (72– 1) = 135

2. 868, 828, 774, 704, 616, ?
A. 484
B. 504
C. 508
D. 520
E. None of these

C. 508

The pattern is:
868 – (8×5) = 828, 828 – (9×6) = 774, 774 – (10×7) = 704, 704 – (11×8) = 616.
So the next term is 616 – (12×9) = 508.

3. 7, 5, 8, 6, 12, 14, 21, 41, ?
A. 55
B. 81
C. 62
D. 79
E. 37

E. 37

This is a composite series. The odd terms increase by 12, 22, 32 and so on and the even terms increase by 13, 23, 33 and so on.
Hence the next term is 21+16 = 37

4. 25 68 196 579 1727 ?
A. 5148
B. 5068
C. 5092
D. 5170
E. 5205

D. 5170

The pattern is:
25×3 – 7 = 68, 68×3 – 8 = 196, 196×3 – 9 = 579, 579×3 – 10 = 1727, 1727×3 – 11 = 5170

5. Find the next term in the series.
5, 6, 28, 165, 916, ?
A. 5260
B. 5334
C. 5205
D. 5094
E. 5267

C. 5205

The pattern is as follows:
(5 x 1) + 14 = 6
(6 x 2) + 24 = 28
(28 x 3) + 34 = 165
(165 x 4) + 44 = 916
(916 x 5) + 54 = 5205

6. 2 6 24 108 560 ?
A. 2760
B. 2640
C. 3350
D. 3390
E. None of these

D. 3390

The series is generated in the below pattern:
(2 + 1) x 2 = 6, (6 + 2) x 3 = 24, (24 + 3) x 4 = 108, (108+ 4) x 5 = 560
So the next term will be (560 + 5) x 6 = 3390

7. 92, 140, 353, 1239.5, 5582.75, ?
A. 30711.125
B. 28976.625
C. 32409.375
D. 35614.875
E. 29984.625

A. 30711.125

The pattern is,
92 x 1.5 + 2 = 140, 140 x 2.5 + 3 = 353, 353 x 3.5 + 4 = 1239.5, 1239.5 x 4.5 + 5 = 5582.75.
So next term is 5582.75 x 5.5 + 6 = 30711.125

8. 318, 476, ?, 936, 1250, 1628
A. 670
B. 672
C. 680
D. 695
E. 710

C. 680

The pattern is:
73-52 = 318
83-62 = 476
93-72 = 680
103-82 = 936
113-92 = 1250
123-102 = 1628

9. 5555, 3358, 2027, 1684, ?, 1532
A. 1581
B. 1559
C. 1600
D. 1621
E. 1569

B. 1559

In this series next term is obtained subtracting cube of a prime number and the series goes like this –
5555 – 133 = 3358
3358 – 113 = 2027
2027 – 73 = 1684
1684 – 53 = 1559
1559 – 33 = 1532
So the answer is option B
