Answer : (c) $\;a_{pq}$
Explanation : Clearly by observation , 1 is root of above equation .
$a_{p}=\large\frac{1}{q}\quad\;a_{q}=\frac{1}{p}$
$a=\large\frac{1}{pq}\quad\;d=\large\frac{1}{pq}$
$1=\large\frac{1}{pq}+(n-1)\;\large\frac{1}{pq}$
$n=pq$
$1\;is\;pq^{th}\;term \;so\;answer\;is\;a_{pq}\;.$
