Explanation: This is an alternating subtraction series in which 2 is subtracted twice, then 3 is subtracted once, then 2 is subtracted twice, and so on.

7. Option B

Explanation: This is an alternating addition and subtraction series, in which the addition of 4 is alternated with the subtraction of 3.

8. Option E

Explanation: This is an alternating subtraction series, which subtracts 5, then 2, then 5, and so on.

9. Option C

Explanation: This is an alternating addition series, with a random number, 35, interpolated as every third number. The pattern of addition is to add 2, add 5, add 2, and so on. The number 35 comes after each "add 2" step.

10. Option B

Explanation: Here, there are two alternating patterns, with every other number following a different pattern. The first pattern begins with 13 and adds 2 to each number to arrive at the next; the alternating pattern begins with 29 and subtracts 3 each time.
