*Directions to Solve*

In each of the following questions find out the alternative which will replace the question mark.

4.

8 : 28 :: 27 : ?

Answer: Option

Explanation:

First number = 8 and the sum of the digits of the second number is 2 + 8 = 10.

Thus the difference of the first number and the sum of the digits of second number is 10 - 8 = 2.

Similarly, the sum of the digits of third number is 2 + 7 = 9.

Hence the sum of digits of fourth number should be 2 more than 9 i.e. 11

Hence, fourth number is 65.

2^³ = 8,(2+1)^³ + 1 = 28.

27 = (3+1)^³ + 1 = 65.

27 = (3+1)^³ + 1 = 65.

8/2 = 4 * 7 = 28,

27/3 = 9 * 7 = 63.

27/3 = 9 * 7 = 63.
