"Fill in the blank space" in the square

Can someone please help me with these two IQ questions. I am not sure about the first row so I have given you two different first rows.[attachment=1:3vl3hl4b]H.jpg[/attachment:3vl3hl4b][attachment=0:3vl3hl4b]2.jpg[/attachment:3vl3hl4b]

Thank you!

For the first one, the most natural to me is to assume that each sequence going down is geometric, yielding 48^2/8 and 1^2/1. For the second, perhaps the second difference is the constant 1, yielding 48 + (48 - + 1 and 1 + (1 - 1) + 1.

In the third column the obvious answer is "1"

Good, that matches my solution for that square.
