Solution:

1. 4;
The series is

∴ ? = 483 + 3³ = 510

2. 1;
The series is
∴ ? = 34 + 160 = 160 = 126

3. 3;
The Series is , 13² + 5 = 174, 15² + 7 = 232,17² + 9 = 298, 19² + 11 = 372, ...
∴ ? = 21∴ + 13 = 454

4. 5;
The series is

∴ ? = 445 x 5 + 16 = 2241

5. 2;
The series is

∴ ? = 1988 - 64 = 1324
6. 3;

∴ ? = 63 x 4+4 = 256

7. 1;
The series is : 1⁴ + 3 = 4,2 ⁴ - 3 = 13,
3⁴ + 3 =84,4⁴ - 3 = 253, ....
∴ ? = 5⁴ + 3 = 625 + 3 =628

8. 4;
The series is : 1⁴ + 2² = 5, 2⁴ + 3² = 25,3⁴ + 4² = 97,
4⁴+5² = 281,....
?=5⁴ + 6² = 661

9. 2;
The series is : 2² = 4,2² + 11 = 15,4² = 16,4² + 22 = 38,
6² = 36,......
? = 6² + 33 = 36+33 = 69

10. 3;
The series is :
11+(11 x 2+3) = 36
36+(36 x 2+3) = 111
111+(111 x 2+3) = 336
∴ ? = 336 +
(336 x 2 + 3 ) = 1011
