This post is about an Online Quiz on sequence and series from First Year Mathematics. A sequence is an ordered set of numbers formed according to some definite rule. Let us start with the Sequence and Series Quiz.

MCQs Mathematics covers the topic of the Number system for the preparation of Intermediate mathematics.

A sequence can be defined as a function whose domain is a subset of natural numbers. Mathematically, the sequence is denoted by $\{a_n\}$ where $n\in N$.

Some examples of sequence are:

- $1,2,3,\cdots$
- $2, 4, 6, 8, \cdots$
- $\frac{1}{3}, \frac{1}{5}, \frac{1}{7}, \cdots$

The term $a_n$ is called the general term or $n$th term of a sequence. If all numbers of a sequence are real numbers then it is called a real sequence. If the domain of a sequence is a finite set, then the sequence is finite otherwise the sequence is infinite. An infinite sequence has no last term.

If the terms of a sequence follow a certain pattern, then it is called a progression:

**Arithmetic Progression (AP)**

A sequence $\{a_n\}$ is an Arithmetic Sequence or Arithmetic Progression if the difference $a_n – a_{n-1}$ is the same for all $n \in N$ and $n>1$.**Geometric Progression (GP)**

A sequence $\{a_n\}$ in which $\frac{a_n}{a_{n-1}}$ is same non-zero number for al l$n\in N$ and $n>1$ is called Geometric Sequence or Geometric Progression.**Harmonic Progression (HP)**

A Harmonic Progression is a sequence of numbers whose reciprocals form an Arithmetic Progression. A general form of Harmonic Progression is $\frac{1}{a_1}, \frac{1}{a_1+d}, \frac{1}{a_1+2d}, \cdots$, where $a_n=\frac{1}{a_1+(n-1)d}$
