Solution

## The correct option is B 8825The series can be clubbed into two AP's, (1 + 7 + 13......) and (4 + 5 + 6.......). So, we can observe that the series can be taken as two AP's by simple rearrangement of numbers. Now, we can find the Sum of 50 terms for each AP formed. Formula for sum of first n terms of AP is: Sn=n2(2a+(n−1)d) So, for first AP S1=502(2+49×6)=7400 and similarly, S2=502(8+49)=1425 So, Sum of first 100 terms =7400+1425=8825  Suggest Corrections  1      Similar questions
