Find the missing term in the following series:**
3, 8, 13, 24, 41, ?
**[A]70

[B]75

[C]80

[D]85

**70**

In the above question, the pattern followed is :

nth term + (n + 1)th term + (n + 1) = (n +2)th term.

Thus, 1st term + 2nd term + 2nd term = 3rd term;

2nd term + 3rd term + 3rd term =4th term and so on.

So, missing term = 6th term = 4th term = 5th term + 5 = 24 + 41 + 5 = 70.
