Solution(By Apex Team)

$\begin{aligned}&\text{ Arithmetic Progression is}\\ &\frac{1}{2b},\frac{1-6b}{2b},\frac{1-12b}{2b},\ldots \\ &\Rightarrow\frac{1}{2b},\frac{1}{2b}-\frac{6b}{2b},\frac{1}{2b}-\frac{12b}{2b}, \ldots\\ &\Rightarrow\frac{1}{2b},\frac{1}{2b}-3,\frac{1}{2b}-6,\ldots\\ &\therefore d=\frac{ 1}{2b}-3-\frac{1}{2b}=-3\end{aligned}$
