The following problem was given to me by one of my friend:
Find the wrong number in the given series:
$$6,\, 12,\, 21,\, 36,\, 56,\, 81 $$ ?
A) $21\,$ B) $12\,$ C) $36\,$ D) $56$
and told me that its answer is B) $12$
but according to me answer should be D) $56$ ; as all the other numbers in the series is exactly divisible by $3$
So, is my answer right ? or there is more reasonable approach for option B) $12$
Any hints/suggestions or help please...
