4.

2 8 14 20 26 32 38

 [A]. 2 46 [B]. 44 50 [C]. 42 48 [D]. 40 42 [E]. 32 26

Explanation:

This is a simple addition series, which begins with 2 and adds 6.

 Prashant said: (Feb 14, 2011) Difference between series number 6. 8-2=6 20-14=6 32-26=6 38+6=44 44+6=50

 Sathish said: (Jun 27, 2011) Difference betwenn series is 6. 2+6=8 8+6=14 14+6=20 20+6=26 26+6=32 32+6=38 38+6=44 44+6=50

 Sravani said: (Sep 15, 2011) 2 2*4=8 2*7 or (4+3)=14 2*10 or (4+3+3)=20 2*16 or (4+3+3+3)=32 2*19 or (4+3+3+3+3) =38 The difference between the digits which are to be multiplied is 3

 Pawan said: (Sep 12, 2012) 2+12=14 14+12=26 26+12=38 38+12=50 8+12=20 20+12=32 32+12=44 Answer;44 50

 Salman said: (Aug 23, 2014) 2 X 4 = 8. 2 X 7 = 14. 2 X 10 = 20. 2 X 13 = 26. 2 X 16 = 32. 2 X 19 = 38. 2 X 22 = 44. 2 X 25 = 50.

 Seema said: (Jul 8, 2015) Every next number is added by 6.

 Debi said: (Sep 24, 2016) The difference between two number is 6. 8 - 2 = 6, 14 - 8 = 6, 20 - 14 = 6, 26 - 20 = 6, 32 - 27 = 6, 38 - 32 = 6, 44 - 38 = 6, So, 50 - 44 = 6.

 Utkarsh said: (May 25, 2017) As every no is increasing with 6 then ans is; 38 + 6 = 44, 44 + 6 = 50 Hence B is the answer.

 Shabbaz said: (Aug 10, 2017) Also, I can be done like take the last number= 38. Add with previous=32, Subtract with the third last=26, =38+32-26= 44, Same way, 44+38-32= 50.

 Naveen said: (Apr 5, 2020) 2+6 = 8, 8+6 = 14, 14+6 = 20, 20+6 = 26, 26+6 = 32, 32+6 = 38, 38+6 = 44.

 Mathka Naveen said: (Apr 5, 2020) First pair- 2+18=20. 20+18=38. Second pair- 8+18=26. 26+18=44. Third pair- 14+18=32. 32+18=50. The final pair is 38 44 50.

 K.Sanjana Varma said: (Nov 12, 2020) Take alternate numbers such as ( 2,14,26,38) and (8,20,32). Take first pair : 2+12=14 14+12=26 26+12=38 Now : 38+12=50. Take Second pair: 8+12=20 20+12=32 Now : 32+12=44. Therefore we get the two numbers by taking alternate numbers and adding 12 to each number HENCE THE NUMBERS ARE 44, 50.
