Solution(By Examveda Team)

$$\eqalign{ & {\text{Number}}\,{\text{of}}\,{\text{terms}}, \cr & = {\frac{{ {{1^{st}}\,t{\text{erm - last}}\,{\text{term}}} }}{{{\text{common}}\,{\text{difference}}}}} + 1 \cr & = {140 - \frac{{20}}{5}} + 1 \cr & = {\frac{{120}}{5}} + 1 \cr & = 24 + 1 \cr & = 25 \cr} $$

    Some mistake in calculation
    L = a + (n-1)d where L = last term = 140
    a = 20 , d= 5 , n = ?
    n -1 = (L - a)/d
    n = 25
