A series of letters is given with one or more missing letters. From the choices, the choice that gives the letters that go into the blanks has to be selected as the answer. In these types of questions, the series itself can be looked at as being basically composed of smaller groups of letters. Each of the smaller groups has a pattern of its own. There are different patterns that the groups are made of and the way the groups of letters are put together to form the series. With the help of examples, we will look at different types of questions that can come in this area. Please note that in these types of questions, the number of blanks in the series indicates the number of missing letters, i.e. by one blank. i.e., every missing letter is represented the letters a, b and c, may be arranged in a cyclic to form a group and then repeated to form a series. In typical questions some letters of this series would be missing and you: have to find the pattern of the series and choose the correct alternative from the choices given to complete the series. In order. Such type of problems, it is always better to proceed from 1-1u. Choices by inserting the letters given in the choices so as to obtain a sequence of a Particular Pattern.

Given below is a sew', in which some letters are missing. From the choice, select the one that contains in order, the letters that can fill the blanks in the given series.

. ab……. a ………d …….bc……a……d .

(a) cdhcabbe

(b) cdheadhc

(c) cdbacdbe

(d) cdahcbcd

a b c d a b c d a b c d a b c d

_ _ _ _

The given sequence is divided into four parts, each of four letters, The first letter in each part is a, the second letter in each part is h, the third in each part is c, and the fourth letter in each part d. I knee, the missing letters in the sequence are cdbcadbc.

Choice (b)

Given below is a sequence in which some letters are missing. From the choices, select the choice that gives the letters that can fill the blanks in the given series. .

a..cd…..c..a…da….d…b…..

(a)bbdcbac

(b)bbcdabc

(c) bacbabc

(d) bcdbabc

The given sequence is

a b c d b c d a c d a b d a b c

This is a series tinned by the group of letters a, b, c and d in a cyclic order. Starting with a, we have the groups of letters abcd, bcda, cdab and dabc, coming one after the other continuously. Hence, the missing letters in the sequence are bbdcbac.

Choice (a)

Given below is a sequence in which some letters are missing. From the choices, select the choice that gives the letters that can till the blanks in the given series.

a-abc-ab- - c-b b-cc-

(a)abcabca

(b)aabbcca

(c) aabcabc

(d)abcaabc

The given series is

a a a b c a a b b c c a b b b c c c ,

In each group the number of a's are deceasing by one and the number of h's and c's are increasing by one. Hence, the missing letters are aabcabc .

choice (c)
