QUESTION: 1

### On Monday I told my friend that I would start for Calcutta day after tomorrow and reach there the day before the day that comes after the day after tomorrow. On which day would I reach Calcutta?

Solution:

You would reach Calcutta on Wednesday.
It's Monday that you tell your friend this information.
You leave the day after tomorrow.
Tomorrow is Tuesday. You leave the day after that - Wednesday.

You arrive the day before the day that comes after the day after tomorrow.

Let's work backwards.
Tomorrow is Tuesday. The day after Tuesday is Wednesday. The day that comes after that is Thursday. And the day before that is Wednesday.
So, you tell your friend on Monday, you leave Wednesday, and you arrive at Calcutta on Wednesday (the same day).

QUESTION: 4

Insert the missing number: 6, 8, 10, 11, 14, ?

Solution:

Explaination-

6,8,10,11,14..

Adding the first two numbers equals to fifth number

6+8=14

Adding the next two numbers will be equal to the next number.

8+10=18.

And series continue. Hence the next number will be 18.

OR

There are two types of series, numberically b alphabetic.

In this series, two series are involved.

Refer to the image for clarification.

First is 6,10,14

6+4=10

10+4=14..and so on.

The other one is 8,11,..

This can be classified as alphabetic series as 8(eight) when spelled starts with a vowel and the next number after 8 that starts with vowel is 11(eleven) and after 11 the next number when spelled starts with vowel is 18(eighteen).

So the next number will be 18.

I hope it is clear.
