1)
⇒ 5 ✕ 1-1=4
4 ✕ 2-1=7
7 ✕ 3-1=20
20 ✕ 4-1=79
79 ✕ 5-1=394
Ans 394

#### 2)

⇒ 18 ✕ 0.5 = 9
⇒ 9 ✕ 1 = 9
⇒ 9 ✕ 1.5 = 13.5
⇒ 15.5 ✕ 2= 27
⇒ 27 ✕ 2.5 = 67.5 answers

#### 3 )

There is pattern between the differences of the numbers given in the series.
83 - 3 = 80
152 - 83 = 69
209 - 152 = 57
253 -209 = 44

Now
⇒ 80 - 69 = -11
⇒ 69 - 57 = -12
⇒ 57 - 44 = -13
⇒ 44 - 30 = -14

#### 4 )

This questions was very easy, there was a clear pattern in series, no need to find the differences.
⇒ x0.5+1
⇒ x0.5+2
⇒ x0.5+3
⇒ x0.5+4

#### 5 )

Again we need to find the differences between the numbers and then there was a pattern in the differences.
⇒ 0....-7....-26....-63....-124
⇒ 7....19....37....61
⇒12....18....24

#### 6)

⇒ x0.5....x1....x1.5....x2....x2.5
⇒ 33 ✕ 2.5 = 82.5

#### 7)

⇒ x1-1….x2-1…x3-1….x4-1

#### 8)

There is pattern between the differences of the numbers given in the series.
⇒ 0....-7....-26....-63....-124
⇒ 7....19....37....61
⇒ 12....18....24

#### 9)

+71....+61....+50....+38....+25

-10....-11....-12....-13

#### 10 )

x0.5+1….x0.5+2….x0.5+3….x0.5+4
24 ✕ 1/2 + 3=
