18 + 2 = 20
From flg. b: 7 + 9 + 8 = 24

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)+ (8), = 80
From fig. c: ? = (1)2 + (5)2
? = 1 + 25
? = 26
Hence the number 26 will replace the question mark.

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.
