Answer : 2. "1962"
Explanation :

Answer: B) 1962 Explanation: Arithmetic Series ::   An Arithmetic Series is a series of numbers in which each term increases by a constant amount.   How to find the sum of the Arithmetic Sequence or Series for the given Series ::   When the series contains a large amount of numbers, its impractical to add manually. You can quickly find the sum of any arithmetic sequence by multiplying the average of the first and last term by the number of terms in the sequence.   That is given by Sn = n(a1 + an)2 Where n = number of terms, a1 = first term, an = last term   Here Last term is given by an = a1 + n-1d where d = common difference   Now given Arithmetic Series is    2, 5, 8, 11,...   Here a1 = 2,  d = 3, n = 36    Now, an= a1 + n - 1d a36= 2 + 36 - 13 = 105 + 2 = 107    Now, Sum to 36 terms is given by   S36 = 36(2 + 107)2 = 36 x 1092 = 39242 = 1962       Therefore, Sum to 36 terms of the series 2, 5, 8, 11,... is 1962.
