2. ## Re: Number Series [2]....

hi suresh

i think ans is 3!

right?

bye

3. ## 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'.

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

3 is not a correct answer.....

Clue: Here Numbers are used but not numeric.

8. ## Re: Number Series [2]....

Ya Mangai plz give explanation for ur answer... Hi Suresh can u plz give me one more clue...

9. ## 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??

10. ## 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.
Suresh, is it right?
