A. 1113
B. 1315
C. 1110
D. 1140
The terms of the given series are numbers formed by joining together consecutive odd numbers in order.
i.e. 1 and 3, 3 and 5, 5 and 7, 7 and 9, 9 and 11,.....
So, missing term = number of formed by joining 11 and 13 = 1113.

A. 24
B. 36
C. 41
D. 43
The numbers are 12, 22, 33, 42, ....
