Answers to #87, #88, #89, #90, #91, and #92:-

All answers other than #90 correct. That is five out of six correct.

Regarding #90,

#90. 1, 2, 6, 12, 36, 70, 216

The pattern is 1st number multiplied by 2, the second number multiplied by 3, the third number multiplied by 2, the fourth number multiplied by 3 and so on. Hence, 70 is the wrong number in the series.

Your performance has been excellent.
