    1. Answer: (b) 14

       

      Explanation:-
      20 – 1  = 19, 19 – 2 = 17. 17 – 3 = 14, 14 – 4 = 10, 10 – 5 = 5.
      Hence, the value of ? is 14.

    2. Answer:  (d) 81

       

      Explanation:-
      6 + (1 x 5 ) = 6 + 5 = 11,
      11 + (2 x 5) = 11 + 10 = 21,
      21 + (3 x 5) = 21 + 15 = 36,
      36 + (4 x 5) = 36 + 20 = 56,
      56 + (5 x 5) = 56 + 25 = 81.
      Hence, the answer is (d) 81.

    3. Answer:  (c) 14

       

      Explanation:-
      53 – 13 = 40,
      40 – 13 = 27,
      Similarly, 27 – 13 = 14.
      Hence, the answer is (c)  14.

    4. Answer: (b) 114

       

      Explanation:-

       

    5. Answer: (b) 65
      Explanation:-
      5 + (1 x 4) = 5 + 4 = 9,
      9 + (2 x 4) = 9 + 8 = 17,
      17 + (3 x 4) = 17 + 12 = 29,
      29 + (4 x 4) = 19 + 16 = 45,
      Same as,  45 + (5 x 4) = 45 + 20 = 65.
      Hence, the answer is (b) 65.
    6. Answer: (c) 72

       

      Explanation:-
      2 + (2 x 2 ) = 2 + 4 = 6,
      6 +  (2 x 3) = 6 + 6 = 12,
      12 + (2 x 4 ) = 12 + 8 = 20,
      20 + (2 x 5 ) = 20 + 10 = 30,
      30 + (2 x 6) = 30 + 12 = 42,
      42 + (2 x 7) = 42 + 14 = 56,
      56 + (2 x 8)  = 56 + 16 = 72.
      Hence, the answer is (c) 72.

    7. Answer: (d) 8

       

      Explanation:-
      1000/5 = 200,
      200/5 = 40,
      Same as, 40/5 = 8
      Hence, the answer is (d) 8.

    8. Answer: (a) E4

       

      Explanation:-
      F – 1 = E  & 2 x 2 = 4,
      E – 1 = D & 4 x 2 = 8,
      D – 1 = C & 8 x 2 = 16,
      C – 1 = B & 16 x 2  =32.
      Hence, the answer is (a) E4.

    9. Answer: (d) 46

       

      Explanation:-
      1 + 5 = 6,
      6 + (5 + 2) = 6 + 7 = 13,
      13 + (7 + 2) = 13 + 9 = 22,
      22 + (9 + 2) = 22 + 11 = 33,
      Same as, 33 + (11 + 2) = 33 + 13 = 46,
      Hence, the answer is (d) 46.

    10. Answer: (d) 1113
       Explanation:-
      13 + 22 = 35,
      35 + 22 = 57,
      57 + 22 = 79,
      79 + 22 = 7 + 2 = 9 & 9 + 2 = 11 = 911,
      Same as, 911 + 22 = 9 + 2 = 11 &  11 + 2 = 13 = 1113.
      Hence, the answer is (d) 1113.
