Answer:
option A. true
Stepbystep explanation:
The given numbers of the sequence are 14, 12, 10, 8 and a person has to decide next two numbers of this sequence.
The given sequence is an arithmetic sequence because there is a common difference of ( 2 ) in each successive term.
12  14 = ( 2 )
10  12 = ( 2 )
So next two terms of the sequence will show the same differences and the terms will be
x  8 = ( 2 )
x = 8  2 = 6
Similarly next term will be y  6 = ( 2 )
y = +6  2 = 4
So option A true is the answer.
