Odd+6=2nd odd.

Even+6=2nd even.

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.

Alternatively 23 is added and 17 is subtracted from the terms
582+23=605
605-17=588
588+23=611
611-17=594......
634+23=617
617-17=600
In these series Actually the answer is 594 but instead of tat we have 634 so we can consider 634 as the wrong no.

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

I had found the same comparison that mr. Shashank found. I think this is more easy.

We can assume two sequence in the problem.

One starting from 582 and other starting with 605 and adding 6 to each term of the sequence.

582+6 = 588
588+6 = 594 instead of this there is 634
and again 594+6=600

Similarly,
605+6=611
611+6=617.
