Soln.
Ans: d

Number 37.5 is wrong and should be replaced by 45. The series is (2 X 3)/2 = 3, then (3 X 4)/2 = 6, then (6 X 5)/2 = 15, then (15 X 6) / 2 gives 45, not 37.5.

96

 D

285

Number 24 is wrong and should be replaced by 25. The series should be 2 X 6 - 6 = 6, then 6 X 5 - 5 = 25, 25 X 4 - 4 = 96, then 96 X 3 - 3 = 285, then 285 X 2 - 2 = 568, then 568 X 1 - 1 = 567.
