#### Question No 1

20, 20, 17, 17, 14, 14, 11, ?, ?
What numbers should come next?

Solution!
This is a simple subtraction with repetition series.
It begins with 20, which is repeated, then 3 is subtracted, resulting in 17, which is repeated, and so on.
Rule = (1st no.), (1st no.), (1st no. - 3 = 2nd no.), (2nd no. repeat), (2nd no. - 3 = 3rd no.), (3rd no. repeat)...
Now in our case, (20), (20), (20 - 3 = 17), (17), (17 - 3 = 14), (14), (14 - 3 = 11), (11), (11 - 3 = 8), (8)...
So the answer is c = 11, 8..
