The given sequence is not arithmetic.

Work Step by Step

You are given the sequence $100,10,1,0.1$. Check to see if there is a common difference (the difference between consecutive terms) and if there is, the sequence would be arithmetic: Here, we have: $10-100=-90\\ 1-10=-9\\ 0.1-1=0.9$ There is no common difference so the sequence is not arithmetic.
