# The 8th term of the sequence 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, g isA. 25B. 24C. 23D. 21

The above series is also called a Fibonacci sequence, where each term is the sum of its preceding two terms.

an = an-1 + an-2

We are interested in 8th term so substituting n = 8 in the above equation,

a8 = a7 + a6. Also, a7 = a6 + a5

a8 = (a6 + a5) + a6

a8 = (8 + 5) + 8

a8 = 21

So the correct option is D.
