    1. 42

      Explanation:-
      6 + 6 = 12,  12 + 6 + 2
       = 12 + 8 
       = 20,
      20 + 8 + 2 
       = 20 + 10 
       = 30,
      30 + 10 + 2
       30 + 12
       = 42

      Then, the missing number is 42. 

      Hence, the correct answer is option (d) 42. 

    2. 70 

      Explanation:-
      26 + 11 = 37, 
      37 + 11 = 48, 
      48 + 11 = 59, 

      Same as, 
      59 + 11 = 70.

      Then, the missing number is 70. 

      Hence, the correct answer is (a) 70. 

    3. 17/21

      Explanation:-
      (2 + 5)/(3 + 6) = 7/9,
      (7 + 5)/(9 + 6) = 12/15,

      Same as, 
      (12 + 5)/(15 + 6) = 17/21

      Then, the next number is 17/21.

      Hence, the correct answer is option (b) 17/21.

    4. 19

      Explanation:-
      15 + 20 = 35  &  10  + 2 = 12, 
      35 + 20 + 5 = 60  &  12 + 3 = 15,
      60 + 30 + 5 =  90  &  15 + 4 = 19. 

      Then, the next number is 19. 

      Hence, the correct answer is (d) 19. 

    5. 64 

      Explanation:-
      2^2 = 2 x 2
       = 4, 
      4^2 = 4 x 4
       = 16, 
      6^2 = 6 x 6
       = 36

      Same as, 8^2 = 8 x 8
       = 64.

      Hence, the correct answer is option (c) 64.
