  1. The ans is 78. Following the logic without tempering with the format, u can establish that, the difference between 16-06 is (-10), that of 68-88 is (+20), that of 88-78 which is my answer is (-10) and that of 78-98 is (+20). Hence with the answer as 78, the logic is -10, +20, -10, +20. Now that is logic.

  2. if you rerason by inverting the numbers you get L8 which is 87 upside down and L8 is not a number. As Thomas says it is a spatial reasoning test not an algebraic one and the ansis actually 87. you look at the sequence from its bottom – but you should look at it from its top. Imagine the numbers are written on a floor then walk round them!

  3. No it isn’t. It’s 87 upside down, which isn’t a number. The whole point is that the answer is not algebraic but a spatial reasoning test.
