At first, I too got hung up on the idea of the difference between numbers.  Every other one is +1 (7-8-9-etc), and the others are +9, +19, and you'd think the pattern would follow with +29.  9+29=38, but 38's not a choice.  The answer is 40 (see my other post)
The answer is 40.  The pattern is this:

first number (7), disregard.

second number (16) is half of third # (8);

fourth # (27) is 1/3 of fifth # (9)

sixth # (next in the series) would be 1/4 the seventh # (10).  So the sixth number is 40.

You can also do this as: (third #)*(2) = (second #); (fifth #)*(3) = (fourth #); (seventh #)*(4) = (sixth)     -      8*2=16; 9*3=27, 10*4=40

If you're coming to this answer page, then you are DEFINITELY trying to cheat on your Caliper assessment.  Your IP address has been noted and logged, and we'll expect that you admit to coming here before we have to ask.

Answer is 40.  Pattern is dual pairs, x and f(x) where f(x) = n*x+n (or n(x+1)) for x=7, f(x) = 16 (n = 2); for x = 8, f(x) = 27 (n = 3); etc.

There is a pattern

n0 = 7 (the first digit)

n1 = (7x2=14+2=16)

n2 = (16/2=8)

n3 = (8x3=24+3=27)

n4 = (27/3=9)

n5 = (9x4=36+4=40)

The Answer is 40
