The next 2 numbers in the series 2, 2.5, 3.33, 4.25 are 5.2 and 6.16

The logic behind this series is
1+5/(5*1) = 2
2+5/(5*2) = 2.5
3+5/(5*3) = 3.33
4+5/(5*4) = 4.25
So, next numbers are 5+5/(5*5) = 5.2
and 6+5/(5*6) = 6.16


Another way to look into this series is
(2/1), (5/2), (10/3), (17/4) ......
Denominators are just 1,2,3,4,5 etc. and numerators are 2, 5, 10, 17 whose difference are 3, 5, 7, 9 etc.,
So the next numerator must be 17+9 = 26
And hence by that format the next number is 26/5 = 5.2
Next number should be 37/6 = 6.16
