### Exercise :: Series Completion - Section 1

Choose the correct alternative that will continue the same pattern and replace the question mark in the given series.

1.

120, 99, 80, 63, 48, ?

 A. 35 B. 38 C. 39 D. 40

Explanation:

The pattern is - 21, - 19, - 17, - 15,.....

So, missing term = 48 - 13 = 35.

2.

589654237, 89654237, 8965423, 965423, ?

 A. 58965 B. 65423 C. 89654 D. 96542

Explanation:

The digits are removed one by one from the beginning and the end in order alternately

so as to obtain the subsequent terms of the series.

3.

3, 10, 101,?

 A. 10101 B. 10201 C. 10202 D. 11012

Explanation:

Each term in the series is obtained by adding 1 to the square of the preceding term.

So, missing term = (101)2 + 1 = 10202.

4.

In the series 2, 6, 18, 54, ...... what will be the 8th term ?

 A. 4370 B. 4374 C. 7443 D. 7434

Explanation:

Clearly, 2 x 3 = 6, 6 x 3 = 18, 18 x 3 = 54,.....

So, the series is a G.P. in which a = 2, r = 3.

Therefore 8th term = ar8-1 = ar7 = 2 x 37 = (2 x 2187) = 4374.

5.

125,80,45,20,?

 A. 5 B. 8 C. 10 D. 12

Explanation:

The pattern is - 45, - 35, - 25, .....

So, missing term = 20 - 15 = 5.
