Pagination for Category does not work


I am trying to implement pagination for category items listing archive.php page. But this does not work. Below is the code that I am using.

Custom Query:

$cat = single_cat_title("", false);
$cat_ID = get_cat_ID ($cat);

$args = array(
    'posts_per_page'    => '2',
    'post_type' => 'mathematics',
    'cat' => $cat_ID,
    'paged' => get_query_var('paged',1)
$posts = new WP_Query($args);

Pagination code:

echo paginate_links(array(
              'base'               => '%_%',
              'format'             => '?paged=%#%',
              'total' => $posts->max_num_pages,

When the page is loaded, it displays the pagination links but when I click on next it gives 404 error.

main page link: http://mk.local/category/mathematics/average/
when next is clicked : http://mk.local/category/mathematics/average/?paged=2

I have already tried updating permalinks
