The right answer is B 13
Option (B): We have series is 2,3,5,7,11,?,17.
Observe that the given numbers are part of a series of prime numbers beginning with 2.
A prime number is a whole number greater than 1 with only 1 and itself as factors.
Now, the missing term will be the prime number after 11, which is 13.
Hence, the missing number is 13.
Therefore, option (B) is right.
