Let $$2^{\text {nd }}, 8^{\text {th }}$$ and $$44^{\text {th }}$$ terms of a non-constant A. P. be respectively the $$1^{\text {st }}, 2^{\text {nd }}$$ and $$3^{\text {rd }}$$ terms of a G. P. If the first term of the A. P. is 1, then the sum of its first 20 terms is equal to -

For $$0 < c < b < a$$, let $$(a+b-2 c) x^2+(b+c-2 a) x+(c+a-2 b)=0$$ and $$\alpha \neq 1$$ be one of its root. Then, among the two statements

(I) If $$\alpha \in(-1,0)$$, then $$b$$ cannot be the geometric mean of $a$ and $$c$$

(II) If $$\alpha \in(0,1)$$, then $$b$$ may be the geometric mean of $$a$$ and $$c$$

The sum of the series $$\frac{1}{1-3 \cdot 1^2+1^4}+\frac{2}{1-3 \cdot 2^2+2^4}+\frac{3}{1-3 \cdot 3^2+3^4}+\ldots$$ up to 10 -terms is

Let $$a$$ and $$b$$ be be two distinct positive real numbers. Let $$11^{\text {th }}$$ term of a GP, whose first term is $$a$$ and third term is $$b$$, is equal to $$p^{\text {th }}$$ term of another GP, whose first term is $$a$$ and fifth term is $$b$$. Then $$p$$ is equal to
