4.

396, 462, 572, 427, 671, 264

 [A]. 396 [B]. 427 [C]. 671 [D]. 264

Explanation:

In each number except 427, the middle digit is the sum of other two.

 Mukesh said: (Feb 25, 2011) There is another method to solve this which is that the sum of all the digits of a number except 427 is even.

 Girija said: (Sep 12, 2011) Answer may also 671. Since its not an even number.

 Kiran said: (Oct 6, 2011) Adding each individual numbers we get even number except 427 it is odd. 3+9+6=18 so on.

 Sankar said: (Jan 7, 2012) The options A,C, D are the even numbers because option A) 396 3+9+6=18 C) 671 6+7+1=14 D) 264 2+6+4=12. The remaining is option B)427 4+2+7=13 that odd number. So the answer is B.

 Bijit Patnaik said: (Feb 16, 2012) Out of the four options 427 is not divisible by 3.

 Gopal said: (Mar 1, 2012) All the numbers except 427 are multiple of 11.

 Sonutalwani said: (Jun 27, 2012) 3+9+6=18 even. 4+6+2=12 even. 5+7+2=14 even. 4+2+7=13 odd.

 Swetha said: (Jul 11, 2012) Except 427 every number is divisible by 11.

 Ashish said: (Jul 30, 2013) Just check the divisibility rule of 2. All digits are divisible by 2 except 671. So why not 671?

 Suresh said: (Aug 19, 2013) May be @Swetha and @Gopal is right. But @Ashish's answer is not perfect. Because 427 is not divisible by 2. I can't accept the answer given by the internet.

 Thulasi said: (Aug 29, 2013) Out of the four options 427 is not divisible by 3.

 Pavan said: (Jan 27, 2014) Sum of first and last number equal to the middle number except 427.

 Sravya said: (Jun 3, 2014) Sum of all digits are even except 427. 4+2+7=13 odd num. So 427 is odd one. From the given series.

 Aghil said: (Jun 18, 2014) The number in the middle or ten's place is the sum of the other two digits. 572 = 5+2 = 7. 462 = 4+2 = 6 so on.. But 427 is not applicable. So it is odd.

 Krishna said: (Jul 19, 2014) Sum digit is even number in the given option except 427.

 Sony said: (Aug 11, 2014) Subtract second integer from first integer we get sum. For ex:- 572 = 7-5 = 2; 462 = 6-4 = 2; Like this.

 Pavan said: (Nov 3, 2014) Why not 671 as the other all is evens?

 Arnab said: (Dec 12, 2014) 427 is not divided by 11. Other numbers are divided by 11.

 D.Nandhini said: (Mar 2, 2015) Answer may also 396 because there is no number having 9 in the middle.

 Shubhankar Shukla said: (Jun 8, 2015) The sum of all the numbers is divisible by 2 except 427.

 Kiran said: (Jun 10, 2015) Answer is B. Because 396, 3+9+6=18 671, 6+7+1=14 427, 4+2+7=13 264, 2+6+4=12 the sum of numbers are even except 427 its sum is 13. Which is odd then answer is?

 Sudheer Reddy said: (Aug 14, 2015) 396 (9-3=6) the middle one minus first one we get the last one. The same procedure is done in all numbers but where as in 427 (2-4=-2) we get negative so the answer is 427.

 Meenakshi.S said: (Nov 2, 2015) You giving good explanation I am learning form IndiaBix thank you so much.

 Aditya Somani said: (Apr 13, 2016) The answer should be D) 264. All but this number are exactly divisible by 8.

 Lakshman said: (Jun 26, 2016) 396 = 3 + 9 + 6 = 18. 427 = 4 + 2 + 7 = 13. 671 = 6 + 7 + 1 = 14. 264 = 2 + 6 + 4 = 12. In the above 4 options only 427 is odd number so 427 is correct.

 Rinky said: (Jul 11, 2016) Every number except 427 is multiple of 11.

 Navadurga said: (Oct 8, 2016) 396 = 3+9+6=18. 427 = 4+3+7=14. 671 = 6+7+1=14. 427 = 4+2+7=13. In the above options427 is give odd number by adding individual numbers so it is correct.

 Souvik Mallick said: (Jan 23, 2017) 3 + 9 + 6 = 18 even. 4 + 6 + 2 = 12 even. 5 + 7 + 2 = 14 even. 4 + 2 + 7 = 13 odd.

 Veera said: (Apr 16, 2017) I agree with your method it's simple and fast. Thanks @Souvik Mallick.

 Ananya said: (Apr 22, 2017) All the other numbers are divisible by 11.

 Sooraj said: (Jul 7, 2017) Thanks @Ananya.

 Eeshan said: (Aug 10, 2017) Except 427 all are multiples of 11.

 Tahira said: (Aug 17, 2017) 3+9+6=18. 4+6+2=2. 5+7+2=14. 4+2+7=13odd. 427 is the odd number.

 Prathyusha said: (Jul 10, 2018) 3+6+9 4+2 = 6. 5+2 = 7. But 4+7 is not equal to 2. So this 427 is the correct answer.

 Mr. Paul said: (Jul 16, 2018) Why can't be 671? It is an odd number.

 Rohan Kanade said: (Aug 25, 2018) All are multiples of 11 except 427.

 Ganesh said: (Apr 20, 2019) Here the logic is; 3+6 = 9, 2+4 = 6, 5+2 = 7, 6+1 = 7, 2+ 4 = 6.
