d) 352

Answer : 363

Reason: Sum to n no of terms in a geometric progression is Sn = a(1 – rn)/(1-r) . Applyting a = 3, n = 5 and r = 3 we get S5 = 3(1 – 3 5)/(1 – 3) = 363. Hence the correct answer is 363.

Reason: Sum to n no of terms in a geometric progression is Sn = a(1 – rn)/(1-r) . Applyting a = 3, n = 5 and r = 3 we get S5 = 3(1 – 3 5)/(1 – 3) = 363. Hence the correct answer is 363.

41. Find the odd man out

b) 2,4,8

c)10,20,40

d)1,1//2,1/4

Answer : 1,1/2,1/4

Reason: All the four sequences are in geometric progression.However the last series 1,1//2,1/4 is an infinite series.This is because the common ratio for this series, which is 1/2 is lesser than 1.Hence the correct answer is 1,1//2,1/4
