D

Soln.
Ans: a

The number 148 will come in place of (C). 8 = 6 X 2 - 4, then 8 X 2 + 4 = 20, then 20 X 2 - 4 = 36, then 36 X 2 + 4 = 76. Similarly, A = 20 X 2 - 4 = 36, B = 36 X 2 + 4 = 76, C = 76 X 2 - 4 = 148.

### Question 2

Directions: One number is missing in the series. You have to understand the pattern of the series and then insert the missing number.

There are two alternate series in the single series, one of them moves with a sum of 2 starting with 45[see 45, 47, 49, 51, 53], and another is a consecutive series starting with 54. Hence, the missing number will be 55.
