Solution : We can judge that it is A.P. With 6 as difference nth term in A.P. = a+(n-1)d a= 3, n = 21, d = 6 So, 21st term will be = 3+(20)6 = 123

Solution : The first letter moves two steps forward. The last letter moves one steps backward. The number series runs as follows :
1 x 1 + 1 = 2
2 x 2 + 2 = 6
6 x 3 + 3 = 21
21 x 4 + 4 = 88.

Solution : We can see the given series is in G.P.
as 2*3 = 6, 6*3 = 18, 18*3 = 54
So a = 2 , r = 3
nth term in G.P. is ar(n - 1)
= 2*3(8 - 1)
= 2*37
= 2*2187 = 4374
