  • $\begingroup$ You should probably include the source in the OP, I think it's being voted down because there's no indication of where it's from. I can't see any sequence that would result in it being 16, though... $\endgroup$ Jun 23, 2017 at 9:53

    $\begingroup$ @MansiManhas Indian book writers and even the authorities conducting the aptitude exams for lower groups posts get the answers wrong a lot. Don't bother with official answer, but use logic. I saw 15 as answer in an another book. $\endgroup$
