    (A) Answer: (4) 728.
    Explanation:-
    31 = 3+ 1 = 4
    32 = 9 – 1 = 8
    33 = 27 + 1 = 28
    34 = 81 – 1 = 80
    35 = 243 + 1 = 244
    36 = 729 – 1 = 728

    Hence, the answer is 728.

    (B) Answer: (1) 375.
    Explanation:-

    165 + 30 = 195
    195 + 60 = 255
    255 + 30 = 285
    285 + 60 = 345
    345 + 30 = 375
    Hence, the answer is (1) 375.

    (C) Answer: (2) 28
    Explanation:-
    31 + 1 = 4
    32 +1 = 10
    33 + 1 = 28
    34 + 1 = 82
    35 + 1 = 244
    36 + 1 = 730
    Hence, the answer is (2) 28.

    (D) Answer: (3) 10781
    Explanation:-
    We add and subtract 10% in the term
    Thus, 10000+ (10% of 10000)
    = 10000 + 1000 = 11000;

    = 11000-(10% of 11000)
    =  11000 – 1100 = 9900:

    9900+ (10% of 9900)
    = 9900 + 990 = 10890;
    10890 – (10% of 10890)
    = 10890 – 1089 = 9801;
    So, missing term=9801+ (10% of 9801) = 9801+980=10781.

    Hence, the answer is (3) 10781.
