► 12 = 2 x 6,
► 50 = 25 x 2,
► 100 = 4 x 25,
► 200 = 50 x 4.

So, missing term = 3 x 50 = 150.

Alternatively,

The pattern is the combination of 2 series:

  • 90, 180, 12, 50, 100, 200, ?
  • 3, 50, 4, 25, 2, 6, 30, 3

after reversing 2nd series, i.e. 3, 30, 6, 2, 25, 4, 50, 3
on dividing term of the same position would give next term of reversed series.
i.e.

► 90/3 = 30
► 180/30 = 6
► 12/6 = 2
► 50/2 = 25
► 100/25 = 4
► 200/ 4 =50
► ?/50 = 3

So, missing term = 3 x 50 = 150.

QUESTION: 25

Question: 48, 24, 96, 48, 192, ?

Solution:

1st term = 48
2nd term = 48/2 = 24
3rd term = 24 * 4 = 96
4th term = 96/2 = 48
5th term = 48 * 4 = 192...

⇒ For every term at even position, previous term is divided by 2
⇒ For every term at odd position, previous term is multipiled with 4

So, missing term = 192 ÷ 2 = 96.
