I think the question should read-what is range of first 29 consecutive even integers?

Hey Sasindran,

The range will remain the same, even if the consecutive numbers are
not the first 29 even numbers(as far as they are consecutive).

Coming back to the question

If the first even number is a, the 29th even number will be a + 2*28 = a+56

Therefore, the range of these numbers is a + 56 - a = 56(Option A)

=>

The number of consecutive even integers is (the last term(L) – the first term(F))/2 + 1 and its range is L-F. Now, Range / 2 + 1 = (L-F)/2 + 1 = 29. So, Range / 2 = 28, and, hence, Range = 56

If the first even number = x, then the second even number = x + 2, or x + 2(1), the third = x + 4, or x + 2(2), the fourth = x + 6, or x + 2(3). Thus, the last even number, or the 29th even number, is x + 2(28) = x + 56. Therefore, the range is:

(x + 56) - x = 56

we have to find range of 29 EVEN NOS(2,4,6,...)
SO A1=2 ,N=29 ,D=2
A29=A1 + (N-1)D= 2+(29-1)2= 58

range = A29-A1=58-2=56
(A)
