1. To find the next number, subtract the smaller number from the bigger number.

I will show you with the first-two questions.

Continue a pattern:

1; 10; __; __; __;

10 - 1 = 9.

The pattern is 9 more than the previous term.

10 + 9 = 19

19 + 9 = 28

28 + 9 = 37

Here is the entire set:

1; 10; 19; 28; 37

=====================================

150; 140; 170; 160; __; __; __;

From 150 to 140, there is a drop of 10.

From 140 to 170, there's an increase of 30.

From 170 to 160, another drop of 10.

What do you think comes next?

Here is the pattern:

We add 30 to 160 and get 190.

We now subtract 10 from 190 and get 180.

We now add 30 to 180 and get 210.

150; 140; 170; 160; 190; 180; 210

Do the same for the remaining questions.
