    common difference = A2-A1 = A3-A2 = 11

    The first term is decreased by 5 to make what... ? the second term? itself? It doesn't make a lot of sense.

    ok...i guess, 11 as common difference(d) should naot have been given. in that case d = A2 - A1 = 4 then A3-A2 = 4 and find 'n'.

    n=3 will give u a3 = 2n = 2*3 =6
