#### Explanatory Answer

Video explanation coming soon.**SET A:** {2, 4, 6, 8,...., 50}. Set of first 25 consecutive positive even numbers.

**SET B:** {102, 104, 106,....., 150}. Another set of 25 consecutive even numbers starting from 102.

Difference between 1st term of set A and that of set B is 100. Difference between 2nd term of set A and that of set B is 100.

Each term in set B is 100 more than the corresponding term in set A.

So sum of the differences of all the terms is (100 + 100 + 100 + ....) = 25 * 100 = 2500.

Choice A is the correct answer.
