generic formula for a series in Arithmetic progression = a(n) = a(0) + (n - 1)d

given : a(10) = a(0) + 9d & a(5) = a(0) + 4d

solving both the equation we get a(0) = 1.1 & d = 0.3

a(2) = a(0) + (2 - 1) d = 1.1 + 0.3 = 1.4

Draw a horizontal line. Make ten vertical lines, evenly spaced.
At the fifth mark, write 2.3
At the tenth mark, write 3.8

Interval distance is total distance between 2.3 and 3.8, divided by number of intervals.

3.8 - 2.3 = 1.5
There are 5 intervals (between 2.3 and 3.8)

Interval distance: \(\frac{1.5}{5}\) = .3

Write the rest of the values in, working from 2.3 to the left.
5th to FOURTH: 2.3 - .3 = 2.0
4th to THIRD: 2.0 - .3 = 1.7
3rd to SECOND: 1.7 - .3 = 1.4 (DONE)
That's the second mark.
(The first mark is 1.4 - .3 = 1.1.)

Answer C
