Solution:
1). The series is –(62 – 6), –(52 – 5), –(42 – 4), ... and so on. So, 929 should be replaced by 930.

2). The series is +12 , -1, +22 , -2, +32 , -3 ... and so on.
Therefore, 41 should be replaced by 40.

3). The series is 13 - 12, 23 - 22, 33 - 32, 43 - 42, ... and so on.
Therefore, 120 should be replaced by 100.

4). The series is ×2 + 1, ×3 + 1, ×4 + 1, ... and so on. Here, 384 should be replaced by 386.

5). The series is ×2 + 1.5, ×2 + 2, ×3 + 2.5, ×3 + 3, ×4 + 3.5, ×4 + 4 ... and so on. Here, 181 should be replaced by 181.5.

6). Total number of employees in Company Q = 14000 / 360° × 54° = 2100
Total number of female employees in Company Q = 6000 / 360° × 43.2° = 720
Total number of male employees in Company Q = 2100 – 720 = 1380

7). Total number of employees in Company P = 14000 / 360° × 90° = 3500
Total number of female employees in Company P = 6000 / 360° × 97.2° = 1620
Total number of male employees in Company P = 3500 – 1620 = 1880
Difference = 1880 – 1620 = 260

8). Total number of female employees in Company R = 6000 / 360° × 28.8° = 480
Total number of employees in Company Q = 14000 / 360° × 54° = 2100
Required % = 480 / 2100 × 100 = 22.85 = 23%

9). Difference = 6000 / 360 × (82.8°–36°)
= 6000 / 360° × 46.8° = 780
