Question: What is the common difference of an AP which has its first term as 100 and the sum of its first 6 terms = 5 times the sum of its next six terms?
Options:
 A. 12 B. 15 C. -10 D. -2 E. a < -2
: C

Option a and b can be eliminated directly, as from the statement sum of its first 6 terms = 5 times the sum of its next six terms, we can deduce that the Common Difference is negative (decreasing AP). Go from answer options : Take option c Sum to 1st 6 terms is given by the formula n2(2a+[n1]d) = 3(200-50)= 450 Sum to 2nd6 terms = Sum to 12 terms – sum to 6 terms = 6( 200-110) -450 = 540 – 450 = 90 5 × Sum to2nd6 terms = 450 Hence option c

: B Join AD. As AB is the diameter ADB = 90. And hence ΔADB is a right angle triangle. Triangles AEB and DEC are similar hence if the ratio of area is 4: 1, ratio of sides will be 2:1. So, AE: DE = 2: 1. In triangle ADE, hypotenuse AE = 2, DE = 1 AD2 = 4 – 1 = 3. AD = 3 So, AED = 60 .
