# 3, 11, 23, 39, 59, ..

In the series

3, 11, 23, 39, 59, …..

The next term will be

(a) 63

(b) 73

(c) 83

(d) 93

**Answer: (c) 83 **

**Explanation:-**

3 + 2 x 4 = 3 + 8

= 11,

11 + 3 x 4 = 11 + 12

= 23,

23 + 4 x 4 = 23 + 16

= 39,

39 + 5 x 4 = 39 + 20

= 59,

Same as,

59 + 6 x 4 = 59 + 24

= 83.

Hence, the correct answer is option (c) 83.
