{\text{As we know that the given A}}{\text{.P is }} \\

\Rightarrow A.P:\;3,15,27,39,.... \\

{\text{Common difference}},\;d = {\text{difference of any two consecutive terms}} = 15 - 3 = 12. \\

{\text{As we know that the }}{n^{th}}{\text{ term of the A}}{\text{.P is given by }}{t_n}. \\

\Rightarrow {\text{So, }}{t_n} = a + (n - 1) \times d{\text{ ,}}\;{\text{where}}\;a = 3,d = 12{\text{ (1)}} \\

{\text{Hence first we have to find the value of }}{21^{st}}{\text{ term of the given A}}{\text{.P}}{\text{.}} \\

\therefore {\text{ }}{t_{21}} = 3 + (21 - 1) \times 12\; \\

{\text{ }} = 3 + 20 \times 12\;{\text{ }}\; \\

{\text{ }} = 3 + 240 \\

\Rightarrow \therefore {\text{ }}{t_{21}} = 243 \\

{\text{Let the term will be }}{m^{th}}{\text{ which is }}120{\text{ greater than its }}{21^{st}}{\text{ term }} \\

{\text{So, according to equation 1}} \\

{\text{So, }}{t_m} = 3 + (m - 1) \times 12\; \\

\Rightarrow {\text{ }}{t_m} = 12m - 9\;{\text{ (2)}}\; \\

{\text{And it is given that }}{t_m} = 120 + {t_{21}}{\text{ (3)}} \\

{\text{So, on comparing equation }}2{\text{ }}and{\text{ }}3{\text{ and putting the value of }}{t_{21}}{\text{ in it }}{\text{we get}}, \\

\Rightarrow 12m - 9 = 120 + 243 = 363 \\

\Rightarrow m = \dfrac{{372}}{{12}} = 31 \\

{\text{Hence, }}{31^{st}}{\text{ term of the given A}}{\text{.P is 120 more than its 2}}{1^{st}} \\

{\text{NOTE: - Whenever you came up with this type of problem them best way is to to compute}} \\

{\text{the given term of that A}}{\text{.P whose relation is given in the question and then compare that with}} \\

{\text{required condition}}{\text{.}} \\
