It's also in the order added by even numbers starting from 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14.

So instead of 81, it should be 85.

Hence, 81 is the odd one out.

For anyone saying even 73 can be the answer, no it can't

if the series were;

41,43,47,53,61,71,73,97 the answer would have been 73.

but the series is:

41,43,47,53,61,71,73,81.

The last number 81 doesn't go with the 2,4,6,8,10,12,14.

Addition series.

So the answer is 81, with the explanation that 81 is a composite number.

81 is the only one which is divisible by 3.

It can be solved in this way too.

41+(1*1)+1 = 43

43+(2*1)+2 = 47

47+(3*1)+3 = 53

53+(4*1)+4 = 61

61+(5*1)+5 = 71

71+(6*1)+6 = 83.

And here 81. So, therefore, it is out of the series.

41+(1*1)+1 = 43

43+(2*1)+2 = 47

47+(3*1)+3 = 53

53+(4*1)+4 = 61

61+(5*1)+5 = 71

71+(6*1)+6 = 83.

And here 81. So, therefore, it is out of the series.
