Suppose four distinct positive numbers $${a_1},\,{a_{2\,}},\,{a_3},\,{a_4}\,$$ are in G.P. Let $${b_1} = {a_1},{b_2} = {b_1} + {a_2},\,{b_3} = {b_2} + {a_{3\,\,}}\,\,\,and\,\,\,{b_4} = {b_3} + {a_4}$$.

STATEMENT-1: The numbers $${b_1},\,{b_{2\,}},\,{b_3},\,{b_4}\,$$ are neither in A.P. nor in G.P. and

Let $$\,{V_r}$$ denote the sum of first r terms of an arithmetic progression (A.P.) whose first term is r and the common difference is (2r-1). Let $${T_r} = \,{V_{r + 1}} - \,{V_r} - 2\,\,\,and\,\,\,{Q_r} = \,{T_{r + 1}} - \,{T_r}\,for\,r = 1,2,...$$

C
$${1 \over 2}n(2{n^2} - n + 1)$$
D
