NewsPaper Puzzle - 10 August

A newspaper is supposed to have 60 pages
but pages 24 and 41 are missing.
Which other pages won't be there?

1. 23 and 40

2. I think it would be 19,20,23,37,38,42

3. Back page of 24 and 41 .. those are 23 and 42
Also joining pages of 24 and 41 those are 37 and 20 also their back pages 38 and 19.
Answer is : 19 20 23 37 38 42

4. 23 and 42

5. Lets start numbering the back pages, so that we can try to understand the logic of deduction.

1,2-59,60
3,4-57-58
5,6-55-56.. => 4,5 back pages are 60-5,60-4.

So paper will have pages like..
..
19,20-41,42
..
..
..
23,24-37,38

So it is
23,24-37,38
