# MATHS (SOLVED IN STEPS) ODD MAN - 03

21. Find the odd man out. 3, 8, 18, 38, 78, 158, 316
A. 38              B. 158                C. 316             D. 8
Explanation :
3
3 × 2 + 2 = 8
8 × 2 + 2 = 18
18 × 2 + 2 = 38
38 × 2 + 2 = 78
78 × 2 + 2 = 158
158 × 2 + 2 = 318
Hence, 316 is wrong and 318 should have come in place of that

22. Find the odd man out. 5, 6, 14, 45, 185, 925, 5556
A. 5556               B. 925              C. 185               D. 6
Explanation :
5 × 1 + 1 = 6
6 × 2 + 2 = 14
14 × 3 + 3 = 45
45 × 4 + 4 = 184
184 × 5 + 5 = 925
925 × 6 + 6 = 5556
Hence, it is clear that 184 should have come instead of 185

23. Find the odd man out. 23, 27, 36, 52, 77, 111, 162
A. 162               B. 111                    C. 52                D. 27
Explanation :
23+2²=27
27+3²=36
36+4²=52
52+5²=77
77+7²=162
Hence, 113 should have come in place of 111

24. Find the odd man out. 241, 263, 248, 271, 255, 277, 262
A. 277               B. 271                  C. 263               D. 241
Explanation :
Alternatively 22 is added and 15 is subtracted from the terms. Hence, 271 is wrong
241
241 + 22 = 263
263 - 15 = 248
248 + 22 = 270
270 - 15 = 255
255 + 22 = 277
277 - 15 = 262

25. Find the odd man out. 125, 127, 130, 135, 142, 153, 165
A. 165                 B. 142                C. 153              D. 130
Explanation :
Prime numbers 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13 are added successively. Hence, 165 is wrong

26. Find the odd man out. 5, 10, 40, 81, 320, 640, 2560
A. 40               B. 81                   C. 320                   D. 2560
Explanation :
Alternatively 2 and 4 are multiplied with the previous terms
5
5 × 2 = 10
10 × 4 = 40
40 × 2 = 80
80 × 4 = 320
320 × 2 = 640
640 × 4 = 2560
Hence, 81 is wrong. 80 should have come in place of 81.

27. Find the odd man out. 12, 21, 32, 45, 60, 77, 95
A. 95                   B. 45                   C. 32                   D. 21
Explanation :
12 + 9 = 21
21 + 11 = 32
32 + 13 = 45
45 + 15 = 60
60 + 17 = 77
77 + 19 = 96
Hence, 95 is wrong. 96 should have come in place of 95

28. Find the odd man out. 3, 5, 15, 75, 1120, 84375
A. 84375                  B. 1120               C. 15                    D. 3
Explanation :
Pattern : 1st * 2nd = 3rd, 2nd * 3rd = 4th, etc.
3
5
3 × 5 = 15
5 × 15 = 75
15 × 75 = 1125
75 × 1125 = 84375
Hence, 1120 is wrong. 1125 should have come in place of 1120

29. Find the odd man out. 3576, 1784, 888, 440, 216, 105, 48
A. 105                B. 216               C. 888              D. 1784
Explanation :
3576
(3576-8)/2 = 1784
(1784-8)/2 = 888
(888-8)/2 = 440
(440-8)/2 = 216
(216-8)/2 = 104
(104-8)/2 = 48
Hence, 105 is wrong. 104 should have come in place of 105

30. Find the odd man out. 30, -5, -45, -90, -145, -195, -255
A. -5            B. -145             C. -255            D. -195
Explanation :
30
30 - 35 = -5
-5 - 40 = -45
-45 - 45 = -90
-90 - 50 = -140
-140 - 55 = -195
-195 - 60 = -255
Hence, -145 is wrong. -140 should have
come in place of -145
