Solution(By Apex Team)

$\begin{array}{l}\mathrm{T}_7=\mathrm{a}+6\mathrm{~d}=-15\ldots\ldots\text{ (1) }\\ \mathrm{T}_{12}=\mathrm{a}+11\mathrm{~d}=5\ldots\ldots\text{ (2) }\\ \text{ on solving }(1)\text{ and }(2)\\ \mathrm{d}=4\&\mathrm{a}=-39\\ \mathrm{~T}_{16}=\mathrm{a}+15\mathrm{~d}\\ \quad=-39+15(4)\\ \quad=-39+60\\ \quad=21\end{array}$
