Look at this series: 664, 332, 340, 170, ____, 89, ... What number should fill the blank?
Correct Answer
D. 178
Explanation
The given series follows a pattern where each number is divided by 2 to get the next number. Starting with 664, we divide it by 2 to get 332. Then, we add 8 to get 340, divide by 2 to get 170, add 6 to get 176, divide by 2 to get 88, and finally add 1 to get 89. Following the same pattern, the next number should be obtained by dividing 89 by 2 and adding 1, which gives us 45. Therefore, the correct answer is not available.

0, 2, 8, 14, ?, 34.
Correct Answer
C. 24
Explanation
The pattern in the given sequence is that each number is obtained by adding 2 to the square of its position in the sequence. For example, the first number is 0 which is obtained by adding 2 to the square of 1 (1^2 + 2 = 0). The second number is 2 which is obtained by adding 2 to the square of 2 (2^2 + 2 = 2). Following this pattern, the missing number should be obtained by adding 2 to the square of its position, which is 5. Therefore, the missing number is 24 (5^2 + 2 = 24).
