Find the number
that continues the series most sensibly:6,

Correct Answer
C. 46
Explanation
The given series starts with 6 and increases by 6, then 7, then 8, then 9, and so on. The pattern is that each number in the series is obtained by adding a consecutive number starting from 6. Therefore, the next number in the series would be 36 + 10, which is equal to 46.

Find the number that continues the series most sensibly: 32, 34, 33, 35, 34, ( )
Correct Answer
A. 36
Explanation
The series alternates between adding 2 and subtracting 1. Starting with 32, we add 2 to get 34, then subtract 1 to get 33, add 2 to get 35, and so on. Therefore, the next number in the series should be obtained by adding 2 to the previous number, which is 34. Therefore, the most sensible number to continue the series is 36.
