    Answer: (a) 89 

    Explanation:-
    1 x 2 + 1 = 2 + 1
     = 3, 
    3 x 2 + 2 = 6 + 2
     = 8, 
    8 x 2 + 3 = 16 + 3
     = 19, 
    19 x 2 + 4 = 38 + 4
     = 42. 

    Same as, 
    42 x 2 + 5 = 84 + 5
     = 89 

    Then, the next term will be 89. 

    Hence, the correct answer is option (a) 89.
