Look at this series: 2, 6, 18, 54, . . .
What number should come next?

Option:
A. 108
B. 148
C. 162
D. 216
Answer: C . 162

Justification:

This is a simple multiplication series.
Each number is 3 times more than the previous number.
The series is 2, 6, 18, 54, . . .
Rule = (1st number x 3 = 2nd number) (2nd number x 3 = 3rd number)....
Now (2) (2 x 3 = 6), (6 x 3 = 18), (18 x 3 = 54) (54 x 3 = 162)...
So the answer is c = 162.
