ans- g(2)=g(1)-g(0)=-1-1=-2  g(3)=g(2)-g(1)=-2-(-1)=-1....and so on.

ans- for every one degree from east to west or west to east there is time change by 4 minute.if we r going from east to west  then subtract the time otherwise add. here plane is going from 40 dgr east to 40 dgr west.therefore there is total change of 80 dgr i.e by 80*4=320 minutes or 5 hrs and 20  minutes.therefore time taken by plane is 2+8-5 hour 20 minutes i.e 6.40 pm.
