If as move towards right series follow the sequence of odd numbers then where is 9 and 15. It can be solve by two methods: (1) as move towards right series follow the sequence of prime numbers. (2) +2 +4 +2 +4 +2 These are the difference between tow consequence numbers. Friends: (0)

So 9 and 15 can't be the part of this series because they are not prime numbers... Hope this time you get me right!! And thanks for pointing this fault.. Friends: (0)
