4, 6, 12, 18, 30, 42, 60, 72, 102, 108, ?
Correct Answer
138
Explanation
The given sequence follows a pattern where each number is obtained by multiplying the previous number by 2 and then adding the next prime number. Starting with 4, we multiply by 2 to get 8, then add 6 (the next prime number) to get 14. Continuing this pattern, we multiply by 2 to get 28, then add 12 (the next prime number) to get 40. Following the same pattern, the next number should be obtained by multiplying 40 by 2 and adding 18 (the next prime number), resulting in 98. Finally, multiplying 98 by 2 and adding 30 (the next prime number), we get 138.

5, 25, 325, 4325, __?
Correct Answer
54324
Explanation
The given sequence follows a pattern where each number is obtained by adding 20 to the previous number and then multiplying it by 10. Starting with 5, we add 20 to get 25, then multiply it by 10 to get 250, add 20 to get 270, multiply it by 10 to get 2700, and so on. Continuing this pattern, we add 20 to 4325 and multiply it by 10 to get 54324, which is the missing number in the sequence.
