**Hint:**This question can be done by easily understanding the concepts of arithmetic progression which are mentioned below: -

$n^{th}$ term of an A.P (arithmetic progression) is given by ${T_n} = a + (n - 1)d$ where a= first term of the sequence and d=common difference which is given by $d = {T_n} - {T_{n - 1}}$. As already they have given $T_n$ of the sequence, we will just substitute the value of ‘n’ to get the required answer.

**Complete step-by-step answer:**

Here in this question $n^{th}$ term of a sequence is directly given i.e. (2n-3) so we can directly use this $n^{th}$ term and can find $15^{th}$ term

$ \Rightarrow {T_n} = 2n - 3$ .............equation (1)

Now we have to find the $15^{th}$ term so we will put n=15 in equation 1 to find the $15^{th}$ term.

$ \Rightarrow {T_{15}} = 2(15) - 3$

$ \Rightarrow {T_{15}} = 30 - 3$

$\therefore {T_{15}} = 27$

Therefore the $15^{th}$ term of the sequence will be 27.

**Additional Information:**In mathematics there are three types of progressions:-

*Arithmetic progression

*Geometric progression

*Harmonic progression

Definition of arithmetic progression: - An arithmetic sequence or progression is defined as a sequence in which for every pair of consecutive terms the second number is obtained by adding a fixed number to the first one. Difference between two consecutive terms is always a constant term.

**Note:**Alternate method: - We can also solve this question by using formula ${T_n} = 2n - 3$

Now we will find ${T_1}$ term by putting n=1

$ \Rightarrow {T_1} = 2(1) - 3 = - 1$

$\therefore {T_1} = - 1$

Now we will find ${T_2}$ term by putting n=2

$ \Rightarrow {T_2} = 2(2) - 3 = 1$

$\therefore {T_2} = 1$

So, common difference can be find out using formula $d = {T_n} - {T_{n - 1}}$

$ \Rightarrow d = {T_2} - {T_1}$

$ \Rightarrow d = 1 - ( - 1)$ (Putting the values)

$\therefore d = 2$

Therefore common difference is 2

Now we will find $15^{th}$ term by applying formula ${T_n} = a + (n - 1)d$

$ \Rightarrow {T_{15}} = - 1 + (15 - 1)2$ (Putting values of a=1, n=15, d=2)

$ \Rightarrow {T_{15}} = - 1 + (14)2$

$ \Rightarrow {T_{15}} = - 1 + 28$

$\therefore {T_{15}} = 27$
