Answer is

(b) 34

Reasoning

First figure - 2/1 + 12/2 + 18/3 + 32/4 = 22 (a/1 + b/2 + c/3 + d/4)

Second figure - 4/1 + 20/2 + 15/3 + 12/4 = 22

Similarily the answer is - 9/1 + 18/2 +21/3 + 36/4 =34

Could the answer simply be

(a) 22

Reasoning

Regardless of the numbers on the outside, the middle number is always 22.

  • $\begingroup$ it could be the answer, but a logic should be strong to support our answer $\endgroup$ – Girish Kumar Chandora Sep 18 at 9:06
  • $\begingroup$ According to the principle of Occam's razor that is the best answer. To avoid the confusion 22 should not be among the possible answers. $\endgroup$ – Florian F Sep 22 at 16:06
