In "Number Series" question, a number series is given with one term missing. Choose the correct alternative that will same pattern and fill in the blank spaces

Look at this series: 5.2, 4.8, 4.4, 4, . . .
What number should come next?

Option:
A. 3
B. 3.3
C. 3.5
D. 3.6
Answer: D . 3.6

Justification:

In this simple subtraction series, each number decreases by 0.4.

Rule = (1st no.) (1st no. - 0.4 = 2nd no.) (2nd no. - 0.4 = 3rd number)...
Now (5.2) (5.2 - 0.4 = 4.8) (4.8 - 0.4 = 4.4) (4.4 - 0.4 = 4) (4 - 0.4 = 3.6) ...
So the answer is d = 3.6
