We know that the sum of first n odd natural numbers is n2.

(i) Here, we have to find the sum of first five odd natural numbers. Therefore, 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 = 52 = 25

(ii) Here, we have to find the sum of first ten odd natural numbers. Therefore, 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 11 + 13 + 15 + 17 + 19 = 102 = 100

(iii) Here, we have to find the sum of first twelve odd natural numbers. Therefore, 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 11 + 13 + 15 +17 + 19 + 21 + 23 = 122 = 144
