    Re: Number Series [2]....

    I think 3 is the answer...

    Solution:
    Split the series into 3

    3,3,5 4,4,3 5,5,4 3,?

    3,3,5
    4,4,3
    5,5,4
    So the next term should be with 3,3,5

    hi manoj

    yes u r correct!
    but there is other solution too!


    take first 5 terms ,u can clearly see '5' lies b/w (3,3) and (4,4)


    similarly '3' lies b/w (4,4) and (5,5)

    therefore '4' should lie b/w(5,5) and (3,.....)


    ..... represetns the next term in series!
    Clearly it should be '3'.


    bye

    No buddies.....You are thinking differently.....

    3 is not a correct answer.....

    Clue: Here Numbers are used but not numeric.

    Re: Number Series [2]....

    I think the answer is 6...

    Jus consider the numbers:
    1-one-3 letters
    2-two-3 letters
    3-three-5 letters
    |
    |
    |
    11-eleven-6 letters..
    So i guess the ans is 6...
    Is it right suresh??

    Re: Number Series [2]....

    I used the same method which Raju has told.
    No. of letters in the Numerals Sequence. Thats how i got 6 as answer.
