In following questions, one term in number series is incorrect.

Find out the incorrect number

11, 5, 20, 12, 40, 26, 74, 54

Find out the incorrect number

11, 5, 20, 12, 40, 26, 74, 54

The given sequence is a combination of two series:

I. 11, 20, 40, 74 and

II. 5, 12, 26, 54

The pattern in I becomes + 9, + 18, + 36, ... if 40 is replaced by 38.

So, 40 is wrong..

In following questions, a sequence of groups of alphabets and numbers is provided with one term missing , Choose the missing term from options. J2Z, K4X, 17V, ?, H16R, M22P

The first letters in odd numbered terms from series J, I, H and in even numbered terms from the series K, L, M. The sequence followed by the numbers is + 2, + 3, + 4, + 5, + 6. The third letter of each term is moved two steps backward to obtain the third letter of the next term.

The present age of three brothers are in proportion 3:4:5. After five years , the sum of their ages 75. Find their ages after 5 years (in years).

Let the present ages be 3x,4x and 5x years respectively.

Then, (3x+5)+(4x+5)+(5x+5)=75

12x=60

x=5

So, after five years their ages 20 years,25 years, 30 years respectively.

For a motor boat that cover A certain distance downstream in 2 hours and return 3 hours what would be its speed in still water if the speed of stream is equal 6 km per hour?

Speed of boat in still water=y[(t1+t2)/(t1_t2)]km/hr

Speed of boat in still water=x=6[(3+2)/(3-2)]=30 km/hr
