1.

Which one will replace the question mark ? [A]. L10 [B]. K15 [C]. I15 [D]. K8

Explanation: How the number is obtained?

2 + 4 = 6

5 + 9 = 14

Similarly,

3 + 5 = 8

 Srilatha said: (Oct 9, 2010) I did not understand how K8 is the answer. Were as I5 + 2 should be k7.

 Monica said: (Mar 20, 2012) I did not understand how K8 is the answer. Were as I5 + 2 should be k7 ?

 Mukesh said: (Mar 29, 2012) @ Srilatha and Monica You can count number upward to downward i.e. 2+3=5 4+5=9 6+?=14, So ?=14-6 = 8. So, Ans is K8.

 Kandukuri Siva said: (Dec 22, 2012) 1 more possible is 2 4 6 3 5 ? +2 +4 +6 5 9 14 and characters are alternates of alphabets..A_c_E_G_I_K_M_O_Q I hope it help you.

 Subhasmita Dey said: (Nov 27, 2014) It could also be vertically like 2+3 = 5, 4+5 = 9. So 6+? = 14. Hence, 14-6 = 8. Answer remains the same.

 Sakshi Bhingude said: (Oct 29, 2015) It is the most easy question I ever solved. 1st alphabet should be forwarded that much times the number is given below.

 Pranavi said: (Feb 9, 2016) Here alphabet will increase by 2. Like A+2 is C. C+2 is E. And we have given two numbers. I think everyone can understand easily.

 Keshav said: (Oct 22, 2016) I understood this sum it's very easy now. a2 + c4 =e6. 2 + 4 = 6.

 Dilip Mandal said: (Nov 15, 2016) This process is very easy too understand, ignore the alphabet given and only take the sum of letter given. Eg. 2 + 4 = 6. 5 + 9 = 14 then, 3 + 5 = 8, So, K8 is the answer.

 Praveen said: (Apr 16, 2017) ACE one letter difference. GIK one letter difference 246(even)358(odd). So, the answer is k8.

 Shibani Pradhan said: (Jul 20, 2017) Option d is the correct answer. I agree.

 Ravi Shankar said: (Aug 21, 2017) 5, 7, 3. 20, 30, 10. 95, 45, ? Please answer this question.

 Chotu Naz Charak said: (Sep 16, 2017) Simply, Guys just ignore the alphabet and their gap. Just count the digit horizontally and I hope you will get the right answer as K8 comes here.

 Shree said: (May 27, 2018) 95 * 2-45 = 145.

 Nid said: (Jun 14, 2018) @Ravi Shankar. 5+7+3=15=1+5 = 6, 20+30+10=60=6+0 = 6, 95+45+x=23+x=2+3+x = 5+x, At x we need a number. Whose sum is 1 so as to make it 6. Like 55,82,10,100 etc..

 Akshita said: (Jan 18, 2019) I don't understand. Please explain it 2 me.
