ITS AN AP
COMMON DIFFERENCE d = 4
first term = a
nth term = a+(n-1)d
201st term = 2+(200)4
= 802

hence C

Since first term is 2 : a1 = 2. Now the difference between 2 consecutive terms is 4 => an = an-1 + 4 .

The 201st term would be (201*4)-2 since the first term is 2.

The correct answer will be 802, Option C

Using the formula a[nthterm]=a+(n-1)d
a[201]=802=> Smash C
