    1. Answer:  (c) 50

      Explanation:-
      3 x 3 + 2 x 2 + 1 x 1 = 9 + 4 + 1
       = 14, 
      4 x 4 + 3 x 3 + 2 x 2 = 16 + 9 + 4
       = 29

      Similarly, 
      5 x 5 + 4 x 4 + 3 x 3 = 25 + 16 + 9
      50 

      Then, the value of ? is 50. 

      Hence, the correct answer is option (c) 50.

      8 x 4 = 32/2 = 12, 
      6 x 4 = 24/2 = 12,

      Similarly, 
      9 x 8 = 72/2 = 36. 

      Then, the value of ? is 72. 

      Hence, the correct answer is option (b) 72. 

    4.  Answer:  (b) 12 

      Explanation:-
      The square root of 121 = 11, 
      The square root of 64 = 8 .

      Similarly, 
      the square root of 144 = 12

      Then, the value of ? is 12. 

      Hence, the correct answer is option (b) 12.
