Ans : E 762

Since 762 is not divisible by 4 , all the other options are divisible by 4

Each term should be divisible by 4 so that it can fit in the sequence.

Over here, 762 does not fit and so it is not divisible by 4.

Simplifying the question into easier words we just need to find which of the numbers is not divisible by 4
clearly the answer is 762 because if we divide 762 by 4 we get a remainder of 2
