The digits are removed one by one from the beginning and the end in order alternately.

So as to obtain the subsequent terms of the series.

QUESTION: 3

### Directions to Solve: Choose the correct alternative that will continue the same pattern and replace the question mark in the given series. Question - 3, 10, 101,?

Each term in the series is obtained by adding 1 to the square of the preceding term.

So, missing term = (101)2 + 1 = 10202.

QUESTION: 4

Directions to Solve:
Choose the correct alternative that will continue the same pattern and replace the question mark in the given series.

Question -
In the series 2, 6, 18, 54, ...... what will be the 8th term ?

Solution:

Clearly, 2 x 3 = 6, 6 x 3 = 18, 18 x 3 = 54,.....

So, the series is a G.P. in which a = 2, r = 3.

Therefore 8th term = ar8-1 = ar7 = 2 x 37 = (2 x 2187) = 4374.
