Well, can you?

Q, W, R, I, ?

Make sure you provide your reasoning. I can ensure you there is a pattern here.

This is probably a simple one, but good luck as always!

I notice that

Q is the 1st letter on QWERTY keyboard, W is the 2nd, R is the 4th, I is the 8th.

So I'll go with

H, which is the 16th. I'm assuming A is the next letter after P.

    $\begingroup$ Well that was fast. Powers of three would've been a little harder (but alas, only 26 letters), and one less letter on the powers of two would've been too broad. Great work! $\endgroup$ May 1, 2019 at 20:08

I think the answer is simply

the letter "F"


the sequence has Q followed by O (the result of removing one line from a Q), and then E -- which I therefore follow with the result of removing one line from an E.

(But OP has edited the question and this clearly no longer works.)

  • $\begingroup$ Sorry, I copy and pasted the wrong sequence (the original [q,e,o] is unsolvable with my sequence). However, I've updated the post to what the sequence was intended to be. My apologies. $\endgroup$ May 1, 2019 at 19:48
