# Logical Reasoning - Letter and Symbol Series - Discussion

Discussion Forum : Letter and Symbol Series - Type 1 (Q.No. 3)
Directions to Solve
In these series, you will be looking at both the letter pattern and the number pattern. Fill the blank in the middle of the series or end of the series.

3.
FAG, GAF, HAI, IAH, ____
JAK
HAL
HAK
JAI
Explanation:
The middle letters are static, so concentrate on the first and third letters. The series involves an alphabetical order with a reversal of the letters. The first letters are in alphabetical order: F, G, H, I , J. The second and fourth segments are reversals of the first and third segments. The missing segment begins with a new letter.

Good question, Thanks everyone for explaining it.

F,G, H,I
FAG and second they told GAF. Next, they told HAI and if it is reversed then we will get IAH.
So, the answer is JAK if it is reversed we will get KAJ which satisfies F, G, H, I, J, K order.

The missing segment should begin with the letter "K". This rules out choices B and D, leaving choices A and C. Looking at the third letters, we see that they are in alphabetical order: A, F, I. The missing third letter should be "L".

Therefore, the correct answer is HAK.

The series follows the pattern of taking a three-letter sequence, reversing it, and inserting the letter that comes after the first letter of the original sequence in alphabetical order.

So, starting with "FAG":

Reverse "FAG" to get "GAF".
Insert "H", the letter that comes after "F" in alphabetical order, between "A" and "F" to get "HAI".
Reverse "HAI" to get "IAH".

Therefore, the next term in the series would be "JAI", where "J" is the letter that comes after "I" in alphabetical order.

2nd letter is static -> A.
1st letter is consecutive
F,G,H,I,J
3 Letters goes like;
G ~ F -1 (according to number values of alphabets).
F ~ I. +3 (according to number values of alphabets).
I ~. H. -1.
We see that the series of -1 and +3 is going consecutively.

Hence,
H+3 = K.
JAK.
