In these questions you need to find the number that should appear in brackets and continues the series in the most sensible way

First Question 10, 18, 15, 15, 20, 12, ....
Seconde Question 10, 13, 12, 11, 14, 10, ...

I am completely thrown out about the above so if you can tell me how you come up with the next number and the sequence

many thanks

Dear Sheryy_d

The sequence is alternating.

10, 18, 15, 15, 20, 12, ....next in the sequence is 25

10, 13, 12, 11, 14, 10, ... next in the sequence is 16

if it's a long sequence, it's often worth seeing if it's an Every Other One one.

Dear Sherry_d

When you have been teaching Verbal Reasoning for as long as I have, you will understand that I can spot sequences a mile off

Hi Sherry_d,

Have you thought about buying the IPS VR technique guide? It is excellent and explains the best way to approach all the different codes and also has some test papers in the back. Have used it with both my children.
