So this question is wanting you to identify some sort of pattern. Let's write it out as the following (makes it easier to visualize):

2,8,32,?,?,?

Now, I can see a pattern right away.

2 x 4 = 8

8 x 4 = 32

32 x 4 = 128 (month 4)

128 x 4 = ? (month 5)

and so on and so forth...

The types of questions I find quite challenging because essentially you need to be able to see the pattern. I typically start with addition and subtraction and then move onto multiplication and division and then I look to see if the pattern is exponential. I find this approach works for me.
