1.
Look at this series:2,4,6,8,10,...What number should come
next?
Correct Answer
B. 12
Explanation
The given series is a sequence of even numbers starting from 2. Each number in the series is obtained by adding 2 to the previous number. Therefore, the next number in the series should be obtained by adding 2 to the last number in the series, which is 10. Hence, the next number in the series should be 12.

2.Look at this series:58,52,46,40,34,...What number should
come next?
Correct Answer
B. 28
Explanation
The series is decreasing by 6 each time. Starting with 58, the next number would be 52, then 46, and so on. Therefore, the number that should come next is 40 - 6 = 34.
3.
Look
at this series:40,40,47,47,54,...What number should come next?
Correct Answer
C. 54
Explanation
The series alternates between two patterns. The first pattern is adding 7 to the previous number (40 + 7 = 47). The second pattern is repeating the previous number (47). Therefore, the next number should be the result of adding 7 to the previous number, which is 47 + 7 = 54.
4.
Look
at this series:544,509,474,439,...What number should come next?
Correct Answer
A. 404
Explanation
The pattern in the series is that each number is decreasing by 35. Starting with 544, subtracting 35 gives 509. Continuing this pattern, subtracting 35 from 509 gives 474, and so on. Therefore, the next number in the series should be obtained by subtracting 35 from 439, resulting in 404.
5.
Look at this series:201,202,204,207,...What number should
come next?
Correct Answer
D. 211
Explanation
The pattern in the series is that each number is increasing by 1, then 2, then 3, and so on. Starting with 201, the next number increases by 1, giving us 202. Then it increases by 2, giving us 204. Then it increases by 3, giving us 207. Following this pattern, the next number should increase by 4, giving us 211.
6.
Look
at this series:8,22,8,28,8,...What number should come next?
Correct Answer
D. 34
Explanation
The pattern in the series is that the number 8 is alternated with other numbers. The first number after 8 is 22, which is obtained by adding 14 to 8. The second number after 8 is 28, which is obtained by adding 20 to 8. Therefore, the next number after 8 should be obtained by adding 26 to 8, resulting in 34.
7.
Look
at this series:80,10,70,15,60,...What number should come next?
Correct Answer
A. 20
Explanation
The pattern in the series is that the first number decreases by 10 and the second number increases by 5. Therefore, the next number should be 20.
8.
Look at this series:36,34,30,28,24,...What number should come
next?
Correct Answer
B. 22
Explanation
The series is decreasing by 2 each time. Starting with 36, each subsequent number is 2 less than the previous number. Therefore, the next number should be 22.
9.
Look
at this series:22,21,23,22,24,23,...What number should come next?
Correct Answer
C. 25
Explanation
In this series, the pattern alternates between subtracting 1 and adding 2. The first number, 22, is followed by subtracting 1 to get 21. Then, 2 is added to get 23. This pattern continues, so the next number should be obtained by subtracting 1 from the previous number, which is 23. Therefore, the next number in the series is 22.
10.
Look
at this series:3,4,7,8,11,12,...What number should come next?
Correct Answer
D. 15
Explanation
The pattern in the series is that every second number is obtained by adding 1 to the previous number, while the other numbers remain the same. So, starting from 3, we add 1 to get 4, then keep 7 the same, add 1 to get 8, keep 11 the same, and so on. Therefore, the next number should be obtained by adding 1 to 12, resulting in 13. However, since 13 is not an option, the closest number is 15.
