Here is the Question....

Question 40

(1) 28 (2) 14 (3) 25 (4) 19 (5) 44
Answer is: 19 but why ?

Instruction just says:
NUMBER AND LETTER SERIES

Each question of this type presents a series (list) of numbers and/or letters. Find the rule that has been used to produce this series; then use this rule to select the item (either a number or letter) which would follow at the end.

Thanks Again...

NUMBER AND LETTER SERIES

I am not a mathematician, just average at basic Math just common sense analizing the numbers series. I would pick 19 as the answer. Take the difference of

10/14=4
14/11=3
11/18=7
18/18=0
18/22=4
The next pattern difference is 3. Therefore, 22 minus 3=19
22/__=3
22-3=19

Hope this helps.
