    1. Sorry, its 440,
      Number of digits in each row is odd number.(1,3,5,7….)
      And last digit in each row is sum of number of digits in all previous rows (16=1+3+5+7). Therefore, using AP if sum is 400, n=20. And the number of digits in a row is the summision of (n+n-1). Therefore, number of digits in 20th row is 39 and the number below 400 will be +40(39+1) i.e. 440(400+40)

  1. No shown below 400 is 21^2 -1

    = 440 (ans)
    reason- if you observe the last digit of every row you will find the square of numbers from 1…..n
    then 400 is sq of 20 hence 20 will be in right corner
    and in the next row 21^2 will be in right corner
    therefore 440 is the ans

    Ending term of each line is a square so 400 line will have 39 terms next line will have 41 terms so the 40th term of that line is 400+40=440 which is below 400.
