• (10 + 9) + (10 + 6) = 35

The last equation can be solved like this:

• (10 + 0) + (10 +1) = 2
• 8 + 4 = 32
• 9 + 6 = 35
• 3 + 8 = 31
• 0 + 1 = 21(10 + 0) + (10 +1) = 21

The correct answer is D (44)

• We are presented with a clockwise sequence.
• Following this sequence, the difference between the numbers can be calculated.
• The calculation will start at 9 since it is in the 9 o'clock position. We can subtract the next number from the previous number
• 9 – 16 = 7
• We can calculate the next number by adding 7 with 16 is 23
• By applying this in the entire process, the missing number is 44.
(37 + 7 = 44)
