    if the difference of any two consecutive terms (\(d=a_n-a_{n-1}\)) is constant, then it is a arithmetic sequence.

    no they are not equal. So i guess that means it isn't an arithmetic sequence. Can u explain why?

    good. that's why. if the sequence were an arithmetic one, both differences are supposed to be equal.
