Solution

√3, √6, √9, √12 ...

Here,

a2 - a1 = `sqrt6 - sqrt3 = sqrt3 × 2 -sqrt3 = sqrt3(sqrt2 - 1)`

a3 - a2 = `sqrt9 - sqrt6 = 3 - sqrt6 = sqrt3(sqrt3 - sqrt2)`

a4 - a3 = `sqrt12 - sqrt9 = 2sqrt3 - sqrt3 × 3 = sqrt3(2 - sqrt3)`

⇒ an+1 - an is not the same every time.

Therefore, the given numbers are forming an A.P.
