    Option C
    Correct Option: C
    Series I : 441 428 407 370 ? 168
    Sereis II : –13 –21 –37 ? ?
    Series III : 8 16 32 ?
    Series IV ×2 ×2 ×2
    Clearly, the pattern in series IV is multiplication of 2.

    So, the missing term in series III = 32 × 2 = 64

    ∴ missing term in series II = – 37 – 32 = – 69, – 69 – 64 = – 133
    ∴ missing term in series I = 370 – 69 = 301
