Solutions:
1). The series is -2, +4, -8, +16…
2). The series is ×1+13, ×2+23, ×3+33, ×4+43,….
Hence, the wrong number is 1704. It should nee replaced by 1705
3). Here, 7 ×0.5 + 2.5 = 6
6 ×1 + (2.5+3.5) = 12
12 × 1.5 (2.5+3.5+4.5) = 28.5
28.5 × 2 + (2.5+3.5+4.5+5.5)=73
73×2.5 + (2.5+3.5+4.5+5.5+6.5) = 205
205×3+(2.5+3.5+4.5+5.5+6.5+7.5)=645
Hence, 9 should be replaced by 6
4). The series is +13, +17, +19, +23, +29… (consecutive prime numbers)
Hence, the wrong number is 85. It should be replaced by 87
5). Here, series is: 11, 22, 33, 44, 55
6). From I pi na ta à are you fine
From III na da ra à we are going
Thus ‘na’ is the code for ‘are’. Hence, Statement I and III are sufficient  to answer the Questions
7).

We don’t know the gender of K
Hence, all I, II and III are not sufficient to answer the questions
8).

Thus, S is son of U. Hence, all I, II, III are sufficient to answer the questions
9). Rishika’s car reached office  at 10:05 am and she takes only 45 minutes
So, (10:05 – 0:45) = 9:25 am
Hence, I and III are sufficient to answer the questions
10). From I , II and III

Hence, either B or E is second to the right of C.
11). ‘A townsman’
12). Replace ‘then’ by ‘than’
13). Arrive ‘at’ our
14). Accidents ‘are’ caused
15). No Error
