Use

Sum of n terms of an AP -

S_{n}= \frac{n}{2}\left [ 2a +\left ( n-1 \right )d\right ]

 

and

Sum of n terms of an AP

 

S_{n}= \frac{n}{2}\left [ a+l\right ]

- wherein

a\rightarrow first term

d\rightarrow common difference

n\rightarrow number of terms

 

series are 3,7,11,15,19,23,27,31..............

and 1,6,11,16,21,26,31....................

So common terms are 11,31,............

\therefore S_{20}= \frac{20}{2}\left [ 2\times 11+\left ( 20-1 \right )\times 20 \right ]

           =10\left [ 22+380 \right ]        

           =10\left [402]

            =4020


Option 1)

4000

Option 2)

4020

Option 3)

4200

Option 4)

4220
