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.

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.

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.
