Question. If the 2nd term of an AP is 13 and the 5th term is 25, what is its 7th term?
(A) 30
(B) 33
(C) 37
(D) 38

(B)
Explanation: Since
a2 = 13
a5 = 25
⇒ a + d = 13 …………… (i)
⇒ a + 4d = 25 …………..(ii)
Solving…(i) and…(ii) we get
a = 9; d = 4
Therefore
a1 = 9 + 6 x 4
= 9 + 24
= 33

Question. The 21st term of the AP whose first two terms are –3 and 4 is
(A) 17
(B) 137
(C) 143
(D) –143

(B)
Explanation:
First two terms are –3 and 4
Therefore
a = -3
a + d = 4
⇒ d = 4 – a
⇒ d = 4 + 3
⇒ d = 7
a21 = a + (21 – 1) d
a21 = 3 + 20 . 7
a21 = 137

Question. If the common difference of an AP is 5, then what is a18 – a13 ?
(A) 5
(B) 20
(C) 25
(D) 30

(C)
Explanation:
Since
Since d = 5
a11 – a13 = a + 17 d – a – 12d
= 5d
= 5 x 5
= 25

Question. The sum of first five multiples of 3 is
(A) 45
(B) 55
(C) 65
(D) 75

(A)
Explanation:
The first five multiples of 3 are 3, 6, 9, 12 and 15
Here
a = 3
d = 6 – 3 = 3
n = 5
Therefore,
S5 = 5/2 [2 x 3 + ( 5 – 1) 3 ]
S5 = 5/2 [6 + 12]
S5 = 45

Question. The sum of first 16 terms of the AP: 10, 6, 2,… is
(A) –320
(B) 320
(C) –352
(D) –400

(A)
Given A.P. is 10, 6, 2,…
here
a = 10
d = 6 – 10 = – 4
n = 16
Therefore,
S16 = 16/2 [ 2 X 10 + (16 – 1)(-4)]
S16 = 8 [20 – 60]
S16 = – 320
