A. True
B. False

2 Answer

  • it is true i am pretty sure
  • Answer:

    option A. true

    Step-by-step 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.
