1( C)Explanation :
3
3 × 2 + 2 = 8
8 × 2 + 2 = 18
18 × 2 + 2 = 38
38 × 2 + 2 = 78
78 × 2 + 2 = 158
158 × 2 + 2 = 318
Hence, 316 is wrong and 318 should have come in place of that

2(B)Explanation:
The pattern is 2^3, 3^3, 4^3, 5^3, 6^3, 7^3. But, 100 is not a perfect cube.

3( C)Explanation :
5 × 1 + 1 = 6
6 × 2 + 2 = 14
14 × 3 + 3 = 45
45 × 4 + 4 = 184
184 × 5 + 5 = 925
925 × 6 + 6 = 5556
Hence, it is clear that 184 should have come instead of 185

4(B)Explanation:
In each number except 427, the middle digit is the sum of other two.

5(B)Explanation :
Alternatively 22 is added and 15 is subtracted from the terms. Hence, 271 is wrong
241
241 + 22 = 263
263 - 15 = 248
248 + 22 = 270
270 - 15 = 255
255 + 22 = 277
277 - 15 = 262
