### Answers

**1. a;**

**√? + 318 = 1518**

**√? = 1200**

**? = (1200)**

^{2}= 1440000

**2. d;**

**25% of 1200 = 300**

**√? + 290 = 300**

**√? = 300-290 = 10**

**? = 10**

^{2}= 100

**3. a;**

**40% of 80 + ? of 50% = 10% of 620**

**32 + ? of 50% = 62**

**? of 50% = 62 – 32 = 30**

**? = 60**

**4. c;**

**5. a;**

**9**

^{2}+ 9^{1/2}= 81 + 3 = 84**? of 50% = 84**

**? = 168**

**6. a;**

**The series is +13**

**So, 35 is the wrong number.**

**7 should be subtracted from it to get the correct number.**

**7. e;**

**The series is +3, +5, +7, +9.**

**So, ‘32’ is the wrong number.**

**8. a;**

**The series is 2**

^{2}+ 1, 3^{2}+ 2, 4^{2}+ 3, 5^{2}+ 4, ….**So 22 is the wrong number. So the required ratio is 22: 22 = 1:1.**

**9. b;.**

**The series is +2, +4 , +6, +8, ……**

**So, ‘7’ is the wrong number.**

**The second number in the series starting with ‘7’ will be 7 + 2 = 9.**

**10. c;**

**The series is -1**

^{4}, -2^{3}, -3^{2}, -4^{1}.
