Reasoning and logic skills are an integral part of subjects like Mathematics. In this chapter, we will learn various problems related to reasoning and aptitude.


Problems Based on Missing Numbers

In these types of problems, we find out a missing number from a given set of numbers, which is appropriate and follow a certain pattern.


  •       Example:

Complete the series given below:

4, 10, 26, 72, 208, 614?

(a) 1815                                                            (b) 1820        

(c) 1830                                                             (d) 1836

(e) None of these

Answer (c)

Explanation: Here the pattern is given below:

\[4\times 3-2\times 1=\text{ }10;\text{ }10\times 3\text{ }-\text{ }2\times 2\text{ }=\text{ }26\]

\[26\times 3\text{ }-\text{ }2\times 3\text{ }=\,\,\,72;\text{ }72\times 3\text{ }-\text{ }2\times 4\text{ }=\text{ }208\]

\[208\times 3\text{ }-\text{ }2\times 5\text{ }=614;\text{ }614\times 3\text{ }-\text{ }2\times 6\text{ }=1830\]

Problems Based on Coding-decoding
