Seperates the patterns like this

582, 588, ?, 600.

605, 611, 617.

In each pattern add +6 and then;

588 + 6 = 594.

594 + 6 = 600.

582, 588, ?, 600.

605, 611, 617.

In each pattern add +6 and then;

588 + 6 = 594.

594 + 6 = 600.

I think 600 is the correct answer because 617+23 = 640 should come if they do it alternatively.

@Shashank

I have one doubt.

588+6 = 594

594+ 6 = 600 then

600+ 6 = .....?

In your point of view, we have options is there..

1) 605

2) 634

Please clarify it clearly.

My answer is 617.

Because all number are composite number except 617 (which is prime number).

If we consider the series;

582+23=605 ----> 1st term

605-17=588 ----> 2nd term

588+23=611 ----> 3rd term

611-17=594 ----> (which is not 4th term) so instead of 634, it should be 594.
