# Find the Missing Term in Series Below :

3, 8, 18, ?, 53, 78

- (a) 31
- 32
- 33
- None of these

**Answer: (3) 33**

**Explanation:-
**3 + 5 x 1 = 3 + 5

= 8.

8 + 5 x 2 = 8 + 10

= 18,

18 + 5 x 3 = 18 + 15

= 33,

Same as,

33 + 5 x 4 = 33 + 20

= 53,

Then, the missing term is 33.

Hence, the answer is (3) 33.
