### Select the set in which the numbers are related in the same way as are the numbers of the following set.

(34, 17, 27)

(42, 21, 31)

(NOTE: Operations should be performed on the whole numbers, without breaking down the numbers into its constituent digits.

**Options: **

a) (38, 16, 36)

b) (54, 27, 37)

c) (46, 23, 35)

d) (64, 34, 54)

### Solution :

**Logic : **

(34, 17, 27) => 34/2=17, 17+10=27

(42, 21, 31) => 42/2=21, 21+10=31

Now apply same logic to options:

a) (38, 16, 36) =>38/2=19 – Not following the logic/pattern

b) (54, 27, 37) =>54/2=27, 27+10=37 (Following same logic/pattern)

c) (46, 23, 35)

d) (64, 34, 54)

**Correct Answer : b) (54, 27, 37)**
