Often this is a problem with questions on series completion. Sometimes the series will be based on a mathematical sequence and sometimes it can be logical. There can be many interpretations and many right answers based on the approach we select.

ans : {23456, 98765}

In {12345 , 67890},  {54321 , 09876} and  {56789 ,34567},  both left side pattern and right side pattern are in same direction (either in ascending order or descending order).

But in {23456, 98765}, left side pattern is in ascending order whereas right side pattern is in descending order.
