Therefore, the answer is 2.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The given sequence of numbers is 4, 3, 2, 5. The pattern in this sequence is not immediately clear, as there is no obvious mathematical relationship between the numbers. However, upon closer inspection, it can be observed that the numbers are arranged in descending order, with the exception of the last number, which is the highest. Therefore, the number 4 is the only one that follows this pattern and is the correct answer.
