Answer : (c) $\;\large\frac{n(n^2+1)}{2}$
Explanation : So , sum of number in $\;n^{th}\;$ set =sum of number of upto $\;n^{th}\;$ set - sum of numbers upto $\;(n-1)^{th}\;set$
$S=S_{\large\frac{n(n+1)}{2}}-S_{\large\frac{(n-1)n}{2}}$
$=\large\frac{(\large\frac{n(n+1)}{2})(\large\frac{n(n+1)}{2}+1)}{2}-\large\frac{(\large\frac{n(n-1)}{2})(\large\frac{n(n-1)}{2}+1)}{2}$
$=n\;(\large\frac{n^2+1}{2})\;.$
