 Consider an infinite geometric series with first term and common ratio r. If its sum is 4 and the second term is 3/4, then :
(A) a=4/7, r=3/7                                     (B) a =2, r = 3/8
(C) a = 3/2, r = 1/2                                 (D) a = 3, r = 1/4

Given, ar = 3/4 and a/(1-r) = 4

So, a = 3/4r. Putting this in a/(1-r) = 4,

we get 3/r(1-r) = 16, or 16r^2 -16r +3 = 0,=> r = 1/4 or 3/4.

Option (D) is the answer with a = 3 and r = 1/4.
