#### Number Series

Direction: In each of the following questions a number series is given. A number is given after the series and then (a), (b), (c), (d) and (e) are given. According to the given series, you have to form a new series which begins with the given number, and then answer the question asked.

1.  25 146 65 114 39 (a) (b) (c) (d) (e) Which of the following numbers will come in place of (e) ?
1. 122
2. 119
3. 112
4. 94
5. None of these
##### Correct Option: C

The given series is in the below pattern ,
First series :-
First term = 25
Second term = First term + 112
Second term = 25 + 112 = 25 + 121 = 146
Third term = Second term - 92
Third term = 146 - 92 = 146 - 81 = 65
similarly , we can calculate the all next terms .
Second series :-
First term = 39
Second term = First term + 112
Second term = 39 + 112 = 39 + 121 = 160
Third term = Second term - 92
Third term = 160 - 92 = 160 - 81 = 79
Fourth term = Third term + 72
Fourth term = 79 + 72 = 79 + 49 = 128
Fifth term = Fourth term - 52
Fifth term = 128 - 52 = 128 - 25 = 103
Fifth term = Fourth term - 52
Sixth term = 103 + 32 = 103 + 9 = 112
So 112 should come in place of (e).
