26.

2,15,41,80,?

 A. 111 B. 120 C. 121 D. 132

Explanation:

The pattern is + 13, + 26, + 39,.....

So, missing term = 80 + 52 = 132.

27.

6, 11, 21, 36, 56, ?

 A. 42 B. 51 C. 81 D. 91

28.

563, 647, 479, 815, ?

 A. 672 B. 386 C. 279 D. 143

Explanation:

The pattern is + 84, - 168, + 336,.....i.e. + 84, - (84 x 2), + (84 x 22), .....

So, missing term = 815 - (84 x 23) = 815 - 672 = 143.

29.

13, 35, 57, 79, 911, ?

The terms of the given series are numbers formed by joining together consecutive

odd numbers in order i.e. 1 and 3, 3 and 5, 5 and 7, 7 and 9, 9 and 11, .....

So, missing term = number formed by joining 11 and 13 = 1113.
