1. Answer:

p – 2q and p – 3q

Step-by-step explanation:

A Series is given to us and we need to find the next two terms of the series . The given series to us is ,

$$\rm\implies Series = p+q , p , p – q$$

Note that when we subtract the consecutive terms we get the common difference as “-q” .

$$\rm\implies Common\ Difference = p – (p + q )= p – p – q =\boxed{\rm q}$$

Therefore the series is Arithmetic Series .

Arithmetic Series: The series in which a common number is added to obtain the next term of series .

And here the Common difference is -q .

Fourth term :

$$\rm\implies 4th \ term = p – q – q = \boxed{\blue{\rm p – 2q}}$$

Fifth term :

$$\rm\implies 4th \ term = p – 2q – q = \boxed{\blue{\rm p – 3q}}$$

Therefore the next two terms are ( p 2q) and ( p 3q ) .
