    Answer: (4) 1470

    Explanation:-

    The nth term of an A. P. = (3 + n)/4
    Then, the first term of A. P. = (3 + 1)/4 = 4/4 = 1
    The second term of A. P. = (3 + 2)/4 = 5/4
    The third term pf A. P. = (3 + 3)/4 = 6/4 = 3/2
    Then, d = 3/2 – 5/4 = (6 – 5)/4 = 1/4

    Formula-
    The sum of the first n terms of an A. P. = (n/2) [2 a + (n – 1) d]

    Where , a = first number or first term

    Then, the sum of the first 105 terms = (105/2) [ 2 x 1 + (105 – 1) x 1/4]
    = (105/2) [2 + 104/4]
    = 105/2 [2 + 26]
    = 105 x 28/2
    = 105 x 14
    = 1470

    Then, the sum of first 105 terms is 1470.

    Hence, the answer is (4) 1470.
