## Which term in the number series is incorrect?

In following questions, one term in number series is incorrect. The numbers are 1 2 + 1, 2 2 + 1, 3 2 + 1 and so on. So, 64 is wrong. The correct term is (8 2 + 1) i.e. 65.

## Is 8 27 125 125 343 1331 2197 an increasing series?

In the series 8, 27, 125, 343, 1331, 2197, we can see that it is an increasing series. The series is the cube of the consecutive prime numbers from 2 to 13. The table given below mentions a few other Quantitative Aptitude topics which candidates need to excel in to crack the upcoming bank exams.

How do you find the series of numbers 340 + 5 = 345?

The correct series is 49 + 0² = 49 + 1² = 50 + 2² = 54 + 3² = 63 + 4² = 79 + 5² = 104. Answer (c). 9, 9 x 2 = 18 + 1 = 19, 19 x 2 = 38 + 2 = 40, 40 x 2 = 80 + 3 = 83, 83 x 2 = 166 + 4 = 170 and 170 x 2 = 340 + 5 = 345. 340 should have been 345.

In following questions, one term in number series is incorrect. Each term is multiplied by 2 and then increased by 2 to obtain the next term. So, 64 is wrong and must be replaced by (30 * 2 + 2) i.e. 62.
