`What number should replace the question mark?`

A. 214

B. 114

C. 218

D. 96

**Answer: C. 218**

**Solution:**

**Square 1:**

11 x 7 = 77 …(I)

17 x 9 = 153 …(II)

Difference between (I) & (II): 153 – 77 = 76

**Square 2:**

13 x 11 = 143 …(I)

17 x 11 = 187 …(II)

Difference between (I) & (II): 187 – 143 = 44

**Square 3:**

27 x 8 = 216…(I)

31 x 14 = 434…(II)

Difference between (I) & (II): 434 – 216= **218**

**Hence, the answer is 218.**
