Solutions:
1). 3 = 3 × 2 -3
5 = 3 × 3 -4
15 = 5 × 4 – 5
69 = 15 × 5 – 6
Next num = 69 × 6 – 7 = 407
:. So the answer is: 470

2). The series in n3 –n
0 = 13 – 1
6 = 23 -2
24 = 33 – 3
60 = 43 - 4
Next number = 5 3 – 5 = 120
:. So the answer is : 120

3). The series is 2 × 4, 4 × 6, 6 × 8, 8 × 10
Next number = 10 × 12 =120
:. So the answer is :120

4). The series is square of a prime number with the next prime number added to it.
7 = 2 × 2 + 3
14 = 3 × 3 +5
32 = 5 × 5 + 7
And so-on
Next number = 13 ×13 +17 = 186
:. So the answer is: 186

5). The series is 1 +1/2, 2+ 2/3, 3 + 3/4, 4+ 4/5
Next number = 5 + 5/6 = 5.83
:. So the answer is: 5.83

6). From (1), we don’t number of men who polled. So we cant answer.
From (2), we don’t have the number of men.
Using both, we still cant find the men who voted for candidate A.

7). Using (1), we can have negative values of x as well. When x = 0.5, 1/x =2, 1/ (x+1) = 0.66
When x = -0.5, 1/x = -2, 1/(x+1)= 2
In the first case 1/x > 1 /(x +1), while 1/x < 1/ (x + 1)
So, we cant determine from statement (1).
Using 2, we note that x+1 > x
Or, 1/x > 1/ (x+1)
So, (2) alone is sufficient.

8). Let radius of the field be R
From (1), we have (R + 10)2 = 1.23 × R2. From this we can find R, and the area.
From (2), we have (R +15) 1.23 R. from this we can find R, and the area.
So Each statement alone can be used to answer the question.

9). From 1, we can have any number of combinations of digits.
From 2, also, we can have any number of combinations of digits.
Using Both, the 2 non- Zero digits in the number can only be 7 and 1.
In this case, the number cannot be divisible by 11, as the difference between sum of digits in odd and even places can only be 8 or 6.

10). From (1) or (2) alone, we cant get the total number of children.
Let Boys be B, Girls G
(1)says B = G +40
(2) (B-8) = 2 (G-^)
Solving, B = 84, G= 44.
Total = 84 + 44 =128.
So, we can solve using both.
