The difference between 1st two number is 7 now add 2 in the difference of 1st 2 no. You will get the difference but 2nd and 3rd. Similarly, adds 2 in this difference you will get different between 3rd and 4th. Check in this way you will find that 135 is wrong instead of this there should be 136.

But we can also think in this way that all no is composite no. other than 71 (Prime No).

So 71 should also be the right answer.

Yes this logic is right.

But If we say 71 is the only odd number in the series where others are even then?

Just add 119+17=136 but not 135, therefore 135 is wrong.
