The next term of the series 2, 6, 12, 20, 30... has to be determined.

Subtracting the terms given from the previous term gives the following values: 6-2 = 4, 12 - 6 = 6, 20 - 12 = 8, 30 - 20 = 10. The difference between consecutive terms increases by 2 for subsequent terms.

Following the same pattern, the next term of the series would be 30 + 12 = 42

The next term of the series 2, 6, 12, 20, 30... is 42
