### In each of the following questions, a series is given, with one term / number / letter missing. Choose the correct alternative from the given ones that will complete the series. 3, 11, 38, 102, _, 443

• A.

22.7

• B.

237

• C.

247

• D.

217

A. 22.7
Explanation
The series follows the pattern of adding consecutive odd numbers starting from 1. The first term, 3, is increased by 1 to get the second term, 11. Then, 11 is increased by 3 to get the third term, 38. The pattern continues with each term being increased by the next consecutive odd number. So, the missing term should be obtained by adding 5 to the previous term, 102. Therefore, the correct answer is 102 + 5 = 107. However, none of the given options match 107. Therefore, none of the given options are correct.

### Which number is wrong in the series? 5, 11,23,47,96

• A.

47

• B.

23

• C.

96

• D.

11

C. 96
Explanation
The series follows a pattern where each number is obtained by multiplying the previous number by 2 and then subtracting 1. For example, 5 * 2 - 1 = 9, 9 * 2 - 1 = 17, and so on. However, the number 96 does not follow this pattern. It should be obtained by multiplying the previous number (47) by 2 and then subtracting 1, which would give us 93. Therefore, 96 is the wrong number in the series.

D. 1813236152022
Explanation
The code for each letter in the word GARMENT is determined by its position in the English alphabet. For example, G is the 7th letter, so it is represented by the number 7 in the code. Applying the same pattern to the word INDULGE, we find that I is the 9th letter, N is the 14th, D is the 4th, U is the 21st, L is the 12th, G is the 7th, and E is the 5th. Therefore, INDULGE is written as 914211275 in the given code.

• B.

- Ã· =

• C.

Ã· âˆ’ =

• D.

Ã· = âˆ’

Explanation
The given expression is 16 multiplied by 8, which equals 128. The combination of signs - Ã· = indicates that we need to divide 128 by a number to get the final result. Since there is no number after the division sign, it implies that we need to divide 128 by 1, which gives us 128. Therefore, the correct answer is - Ã· =, indicating that 128 divided by 1 equals 128.

A. Only conclusion (II) follows
Explanation
The first statement states that the best performance in Olympics fetches a gold medal. The second statement states that player 'X' got a gold medal but later was found to be using a prohibited drug. From these statements, it can be inferred that player 'X' obtained the gold medal through unfair means, as the use of prohibited drugs is against the rules of the Olympics. Therefore, it is logical to conclude that the gold medal should be withdrawn from player 'X' and given to the next person who deserves it. This aligns with conclusion (II) which states that the gold medal should be withdrawn and given to the next person. Conclusion (I) does not follow as player 'X' should not be allowed to keep the gold medal due to the use of a prohibited drug.

A. Only conclusion (II) follows
Explanation
The given statements state that "No children are voters." This means that there is no overlap between the group of children and the group of voters. From this, we can conclude that "No voters are children" (Conclusion II) because if there is no overlap between the two groups, then it is not possible for any voters to be children. However, we cannot conclude that "No adults are voters" (Conclusion I) because the statements only provide information about children and voters, not about adults. Therefore, only conclusion (II) follows.
