1. (c) 51

Explanation:-
16 + 2 x 7 = 16 + 14
= 30,
30 + 3 x 7 = 30 + 21
= 51,
51 + 4 x 7 = 51 + 28
= 79,
79 + 5 x 7 = 79 + 35
= 114

Then, the missing number is 51.

Hence, the correct answer is option (c) 51.

2. (c) 8

Explanation:-

3. (c) L

Explanation:-

T – 2 = R, R – 2 = P,  P – 2 = N same as,  N – 2 = L

Then, the next letter will be L.

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

4. (d) 9

Explanation:-
4 x 2 + 1 = 8 + 1
= 9,
9 x 2 + 1 = 18 + 1
= 19,
19 x 2 + 1 = 38 + 1
39,
39 x 2 + 1 = 78 + 1
= 79,

Then, the missing number will be 9.

Hence, the correct answer is option (d) 9.

5. (d) P

Explanation:-
Z – 2 = X,  X – 2 = V, V – 2 = T,  T – 2 = R,  R – 2 = P,  P – 2 = N.

Then, the missing letter will be P.

Hence, the correct answer is (d) P.
