Solution

## The correct option is D KSince each letter in the above sequence represents a number, let's write down the sequence as: Thus, decoding the sequence B, C, E, G, M, Q, S, we get: B = 2 C = 3 E = 5 G = 7 M = 13 Q = 17 S = 19 The number sequence would be: 2, 3, 5, 7, __ , 13, 17, 19 The sequence above represents prime numbers, and the prime number between 7 and 13 is 11. The letter corresponding to 11 is K. Hence, the missing letter from the given sequence is K.
