3, 8, 13, 24, 41,

Option:
A. 70
B. 75
C. 80
D. 85
Answer: A . 70

Justification:

The pattern followed is :
nth term + (n + 1) th term + (n + 1) = (n + 2) th term.
Thus, 1st term + 2nd term + 2 = 3rd term;
2nd term + 3rd term + 3 = 4th term and so on.
.'. Missing term = 6th term = 4th term + 5th term = 5
= 24 + 41 + 5 = 70.
