Where should the number 10 be placed to continue the sequence?

**8 5 4 9 1 7 6 3 2 **

I suggest you focus on the 3rd category!

]]>In solving letter sequences, there are usually 3 basic questions to ask:

1. Is there a mathematical progression? (eg, move 4 letters through the alphabet, then back two etc)

2. Is there a sequence based on initial letters of something occurring in general life, not mathematics? (MTWTFSS, OTTFFSS, JFMAMJJ)

3. Is there an intrinsic quality to the letters themselves that has nothing to do with the above?

Is it time to give a clue on this one? I must say, the logic is one of the more obcure relationships.
