Explanation:

$3×2+2=8\\8×2+2=18\\18×2+2=38\\38×2+2=78\\78×2+2=158\\158×2+2=318$

Therefore, $318$ should have come in place of $316$

 22. Find the odd man out. $5,6,14,45,185,925,5556$ A. $925$ B. $6$ C. $5556$ D. $185$

Explanation:

$5×1+1=6$
$6×2+2=14$
$14×3+3=45$
$45×4+4=184$
$184×5+5=925$
$925×6+6=5556$

Therefore, $184$ should have come instead of $185$

 23. Find the odd man out. $23,27,36,52,77,111,162$ A. $111$ B. $27$ C. $52$ D. $162$

Explanation:

$23+2^2=27\\27+3^2=36\\36+4^2=52\\52+5^2=77\\77+6^2=113\\113+7^2=162$

Hence, $113$ should have come in place of $111$

 24. Find the odd man out. $241,263,248,271,255,277,262$ A. $263$ B. $241$ C. $277$ D. $271$

Explanation:

$241+22=263\\263-15=248\\248+22=270\\270-15=255\\255+22=277\\277-15=262$

Therefore, $270$ should have come in place of $271$
