Hey guys why can't we found another reasoning. Like I came out with an answer 600 as it is only one divisble by 100 leaving no remainder.

600 +17

617 +17

634 -23

611 -23

588 +17

605 +17

582

If we consider, +17 added twice then -23, it makes sence so 582 should be the answer

617 +17

634 -23

611 -23

588 +17

605 +17

582

If we consider, +17 added twice then -23, it makes sence so 582 should be the answer

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.

582-605=23,

605-588=17

588-611=23

634-617=17

611-634=23

So balance 17 +17 =34

Add balance no is 600 +34 =634 ans.

605-588=17

588-611=23

634-617=17

611-634=23

So balance 17 +17 =34

Add balance no is 600 +34 =634 ans.

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

582+23=605.

605-17=588.

588+23=611.

611-17=594 => 634 is wrong answer.

594+23=617.

617-17=600.

605-17=588.

588+23=611.

611-17=594 => 634 is wrong answer.

594+23=617.

617-17=600.

My answer is 617.

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

582+6 = 588.

605+6 = 611.

588+6 = 594(but the given answer is 634).

611+6 = 617.

594+6 = 600.

605+6 = 611.

588+6 = 594(but the given answer is 634).

611+6 = 617.

594+6 = 600.

In the series the numbers order increase and decrease. So the series wrong number is 634.
