# The next term in the series :

2, 5, 10, 17, 26, 37, ____ is:

- 50
- 57
- 62
- 72

**Answer: (1) 50 **

**Explanation:-**

2 + 3 = 5, 5 + 3 + 2 = 5 + 5 = 10, 10 + 5 + 2 = 10 + 7 = 17, 17 + 7 + 2 = 17 + 9 = 26, 26 + 9 + 2 = 26 + 11 = 37,

Same as, **37 + 11 + 2 = 37 + 13 = 50 **

Then, the next term in the series is 50.

Hence, the correct answer is option (1) 50.
