Answer : (c) $ both\;a\;\xi\;b$

Explanation : Let the 3 numbers in GP be a/r, a, ar

$a/r*a*ar=64\;\qquad a^3=64$

a=4

$Given\;a/r*a+a*ar+a/r*ar=56$

$a^2/r+a^2\;r+a^2=56\;\qquad\;a=4\;\quad a^2=16$

$16/r+16r+16=56\;\qquad\;2r^2-5r+2=0$

$2r^2-r-4r+2=0\;\qquad\;2r(r-2)-1(r-2)=0$

$2r-1=0\;\quad\;or\;\quad\;r-2=0$

$r=1/2\;\quad\;or\;\quad\;r=2$

$a/r,a,ar=8,4,2\;\quad\;or\;\quad\;2,4,8.$
