1. (c) : Each term in the series is increased by 3 to obtain the next term. So. 31 is wrong and must be replaced by (27 + 3) i.e. 30.

2. (a)

3. (d) : The series consists of consecutive prime numbers. So. 9 is wrong.

4. (c): Each term of the series is increased by 22 to obtain the next term. So. 186 is wrong and must be replaced by (165 + 22) i.e. 187.

5. (d) : Each term of the series is obtained by multiplying the preceding term by 2 So, 96 is wrong and must be replaced by (64 x 2) i.e. 128.

6. (b) : Each term in the series is less than twice the preceding term by 2. So. 48 is wrong and should be replaced by (26 x 2 - 2) i.e. 50.

7. (d) : Go on adding 5, 8, 11, 14, 17, 20.
So, the number 47 is wrong and must be replaced by 46.

8. (c)

9. (c) : The correct pattern is - 192, - 96, - 48, - 24, - 12, - 6.
So, 48 is wrong and must be replaced by (92 - 48) i.e. 44.

10. (c)

11. (d): (1x1)+1 , (2x2)+1 , (3x3)+1 , (4x4)+1 , (5x5)+1 , (6x6)+1 , (7x7)+1 , (8x8)+1
But, 64 is out of pattern.

12. (d) : The sequnece is ( x 2 + 1, x 3 + 1, x 2 + 1, x 3 + 1,....)
So, 256 is wrong and must be replaced by (129 x 2 + 1)  i.e.  259.

13. (b)

14. (c): Each term is multiplied by 2 and then increased by 2 to obtain the next term. So, 64 is wrong and must be replaced by (30 x 2 + 2) i.e. 62.

15. (d): Each term is 4 less than thrice the preceding number.
So, 654 is wrong and must be replaced by (218 x 3 - 4) - 650.
