PQRS is a square of length x, a natural number >1. Let L1,L2,L3,L4…be points on QR such that QL1=L1L2=L2L3=L3L4….=1 and M1,M2,M3 be points on RS such that R\(M_1=M_1M_2=M_2M_3. _{. . . . . .}=1\). Then, a−1n−1∑(PL2n+LnM2n) is equal to?

Options:

A . 12 × a × (a-1)2

B . 12 × a × (a-1)×(4a-1)

C . 12 ×(a-1)×(2a-1)×(4a-1)

D . 12 ×(a+1)×(2a-1)×(4a-1)

E . 2

Answer: Option B : B Option (b) Assume a square of side 2 as follows with L1 as the midpoint of side QR and M1 as the mid-point of side RS At n=1, the expression yields a value 5+2=7 Look in the answer options for 7, when n=1. Eliminate those answer options where this is not obtained 12*a*(a-1)2= 1 12 *a*(a-1)*(4a-1)= 7 12 *(a-1)*(2a-1)*(4a-1)= 212 12*(a+1)*(2a-1)*(4a-1)= 632 a2*2n2 = 8
