It's just the series of addition of squares of successive odd numbers and the squares of successive even numbers..ie.,

(1^2)+(3^2)=1+9=10

(2^2)+(4^2)=4+16=20

(5^2)+(7^2)=25+49=74

(6^2)+(8^2)=36+64=100

(9^2)+(11^2)=81+121=202

Similarly,

(10^2)+(12^2)=100+144=244.

and the series goes on and on....!!

So, 244 is the answer.
