Answer : (a) -2,1,4,16

Explanation : Let the 4 numbers be a,b,c,d

$a,b,c\;in\;AP\quad\;2b=a+c$

$b,c,d\;in\;GP\quad\;c^2=bd$

$a+c=2$

$b+d=17$

$a+c=2\quad\;2b=a+c=2$

$b=1$

$b+d=17\quad\;d=17-1=16$

$c^2=bd\quad\;c^2=1*16=16$

$c=\pm4$

$a=2-c$

$=-2\quad\;or\quad\;6$

$Series\;is\;-2,1,4,16\quad\;or\quad\;6,1,-4,16.$
