Different types of Number Series are being
asked in SBI Clerk 2020 and NIACL:
The most common patterns followed by number series are:
1. Series consisting of Perfect Squares:
A series based on Perfect squares is most of the times based on the perfect squares of the numbers in a specific order & generally one of the numbers is missing in this type of series.
Ex: 13 15 21 33 53 ?
Sol:

Twostage Type Series:
In a two step Arithmetic series, the differences of consecutive numbers themselves form an arithmetic series.
Ex: 9 13 22 36 55 ?
Sol:
Series Pattern:
Series I 
: 
9 

13 

22 

36 

55 

79 


Series II 
: 

+ 4 

+ 9 

+ 14 

+ 19 

+ 24

Ex: 450 448 457 429 494 ?
Sol :
Series Pattern 
Given Series 

450 
450 

450 – (1 + 1^{3}) 
448 

448 + (1 + 2^{3}) 
457 

457 – (1 + 3^{3}) 
429 

429 + (1 + 4^{3}) 
494 

494 – (1 + 5^{3}) 
368 
?

Sol: As we can see, there are two series formed
Series 1: 3, 8, 13 with a common difference of 5
Series 2: 4, 10, 16 with a common difference of 6
So, next two terms of the series should be 18 & 22 respectively.
