Solution:
1).  104 + 72 = 153
153 + 62 = 189
189 + 52 = 214
214+ 42 = 230

2).  12 × 2 - 2 = 22
22 × 3 + 3 = 69
69 × 4 - 4 = 272
272 × 5 + 5 = 1365
1365 × 6 - 6 = 8184

3).  15 + 2 = 17
17 + 4 = 21
21 + 8 = 29
29 + 16 = 45
45 + 32 = 77
77 + 64 = 141

4).  The series is
11, 22, 33, 44, 55
Hence, the question mark will be replaced by 4.

5).  15 + 17 = 32
17 + 32 = 49
32 + 49 = 81
49 + 81 = 130
81 + 130 = 211

Directions (Q. 6-10):

6). Number of Economics books returned = 18% of 4000 = 720
Required percentage = (720/31000)× 100 = 2.32% 720/31000

7). Required average = (27+29+31)/3= 29
= 29000

8). Number of Commerce books returned = 780
Total number of books returned = 780/13 × 100 = 6000
Number of English and Marketing books returned = 37% of 6000 = 2220
Required ratio = 46000 : 2220 = 2300 : 111 = 41 : 2.

9). Second highest number of books sold was Economics

10). We need to check for which shopkeeper (s) the number of Commerce books sold were the highest, for that shopkeeper the percentage of Commerce books sold as a percentage of total number of books sold by that shopkeeper would be higher than for the shopkeeper who has not sold maximum number of Commerce books out of all the books sold, there is only one shopkeeper is D.
