Motorola Reasoning Question

DIRECTIONS for questions 1-3: Seven poles A, B, C, D, E, F and G are put in such a way that the distance between the next two decreases by 1 meter. The distance between the first two poles, A and B is 10 meters. Now answer the following questions ?
  1. What is the distance between the first pole A and the last pole G ?
    1. 40 m.
    2. 49 m.
    3. 45 m.
    4. None of these.

    Answer: Option C.
    If we place A,B,C,D,E,F and G sequentially leaving a distance of 10,9,8,7,6,5 respectively the total length comes out to be 45m.
