Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

It would be a geometric sequence.

The sequence would be 1, 2, 4, 8, 16,....

The ratio of n: (n+1) is always 1:2. Therefore it would be a geometric sequence.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
