What number should come next in this series: 22, 21, 23, 22, 24, 23, ...?
Correct Answer
C. 25
Explanation
In this series, the pattern is that the numbers alternate between decreasing by 1 and increasing by 2. Starting with 22, the next number is 21 (decreasing by 1), then 23 (increasing by 2), then 22 (decreasing by 1), then 24 (increasing by 2), and so on. Therefore, the next number in the series would be 25 (increasing by 2).

If 13 x 12 = 651 & 41 x 23 = 448, then, 24 x 22 =?
Correct Answer
C. 924
Explanation
The pattern observed in the given equations is that the product of the tens digits is subtracted from the product of the units digits to obtain the result. In the first equation, (1 x 3) is subtracted from (6 x 5) to give 651. Similarly, in the second equation, (4 x 3) is subtracted from (8 x 2) to give 448. Applying the same pattern to the third equation, (2 x 4) is subtracted from (2 x 2) to give 924.
