KUDOS please if you like my question.

We know that v,w,x,y,z are in GP. Thus, w/v = x/w = y/x = z/y = r(some constant, called the common ratio)

I. A multiplication by a constant (2) will not change the ratio, as evident. III. The ratio for these terms will be another constant \(\sqrt{r}\)

An arithmetic sequence is a sequence in which each term after the first term is equal to the sum of the preceding term and a constant. If the list of numbers shown above is an arithmetic sequence, which of the following must also be an arithmetic sequence?

I. 2p, 2r, 2s, 2t, 2u II. p-3, r-3, s-3, t-3, u-3 III. p^2, r^2, s^2, t^2, u^2
