**Basics for solution: **

In this type of questions. a figure or a matrix is given in which some numbers are filled according to a rule. A place is left blank. You have to find out a character (a number or a letter) from the given possible answers which may be filled in the blank space.

Some examples are Riven below:**Example 1: ****Which number will replace the question mark?**

**Solution: **

From fig. a: 6 + 4 + 8 = 18

18 + 2 = 20

From flg. b: 7 + 9 + 8 = 24

24 + 2 = 26

From fig. c: 6 + 5 + 12 = 23

23+2 = 25

Hence the number 25 will replace the question mark.**Example 2: ****Which number will replace the question mark?**** ****Solution: **

From flg. a: (3)^{2} + (2)^{2} = 13

From fig. b: (4)^{2 }+ (8), = 80

From fig. c: ? = (1)^{2} + (5)^{2}

? = 1 + 25

? = 26

Hence the number 26 will replace the question mark.**Example 3: ****Which number will replace the question mark?**** ****Solution: **

From fig. a: 7 x 6 + 3 = 45

From fig. b: 5 x 4 + 6 = 26

From fig. c: 7 x 3 + 8 = 29

Hence the number 29 will replace the question mark.**Example 4: ****Which number will replace the question mark?**** ****Solution: **

From fig. a: 9^{2} + 8^{2} + 7^{2} + 6^{2} = 81 +64 + 49 + 36 = 230

From fig. b: 6^{2 }+ T^{2 }+ 3^{2 }+ 4^{2} = 36 + 49 + 9 + 16 = 110

From fig. c: 9^{2}+ 6^{2 }+ 5^{2} + 4^{2 }= 81 + 36 + 25 + 16= 158

Hence the number 158 will replace the question mark.**Example 5: ****Which number will replace the question mark?**** ****Solution: **

(4+3)^{2 }=(7)^{2 }=49

(8 + 5)^{2} = (13)^{2 }= 169

(11 + 12)^{2} = (23)^{2} = 529

(10 + 9)^{2} = (19)^{2} = 361

Hence the number 361 will replace the questich mark.**Example 6: ****Which number will replace the question mark?**** ****Solution: **

From column is I: (9 x 5) % 5 = 9

From column II: (17 x 4) % 4 = 17

From column III: (16 x ?) % 8 = 8

16? = 64

? = 4

Hence the number 4 will replace the question mark.**Example 7: ****Which number will replace the question mark?**** ****Solution: **

(5)^{2} = 25

(6)^{2} = 36

(4)^{2 }= 16

(7)^{2} = 49

Hence the number 49 will replace the question mark.
