Its the big gap between the 378 and 27 that makes it seem odd!
Off to think why 5 now.

All the numbers after 378 relate to how many letters are in the prior number so the answer is 5 because there are 5 letters in three and so on and so forth. I have no idea how Rob managed to work it out so quickly

I would never have got that either.....see, Rob can obviously think far more laterally than any of us - and that is a real life-skill so he should be proud of himself.
