Question. In an AP, if a = 3.5, d = 0, n = 101, then an will be
(A) 0
(B) 3.5
(C) 103.5
(D) 104.5

(B)
Explanation:
For an A.P
an = a + (n – 1) d
= 3.5 + (101 – 1)x0
= 3.5

Question. In an AP, if d = –4, n = 7, an = 4, then a is
(A) 6
(B) 7
(C) 20
(D) 28

(D)
Explanation:
For an A.P
an = a + (n – 1) d
4 = a + (7 – 1) (-4)
4 = a + 6 (-4)
4 + 24 = a
a = 28

Question. The first four terms of an AP, whose first term is –2 and the common difference is –2, are
(A) – 2, 0, 2, 4
(B) – 2, 4, – 8, 16
(C) – 2, – 4, – 6, – 8
(D) – 2, – 4, – 8, –16

(C)
Explanation:
Let the first four terms of an A.P are a, a+d, a+2d and a+3d
Given that the first termis −2 and difference is also −2, then the A.P would be:
-2,(-2-2), [-2+2(-2)],[-2 + 3(-2)]
= – 2, – 4, – 6, – 8

Question. The 11th term of an A.P – 5 -(5/2),0,(5/2) …………….is:
(A) –20
(B) 20
(C) –30
(D) 30

(B)
Explanation:
Given A.P is – 5 -(5/2),0,(5/2)
here a = – 5
d = -5/2 – (-5)
d = 5/2
a11 = a + (11 -1)d
a11 = – 5 + 10 (5/2)
a11 = – 5 + 25
a11 = 20
