Here a = 2

According to the condition in the question, we get

a + (a + d) + (a + 2d) + (a + 3d) + (a + 4d) = 1/4 [(a + 5d) + (a + 6d) + (a + 7d) + (a + 8d) + (a + 9d)]

→ 5a + 10d = 1/4 (5a + 35d)
→ 20a + 40d = 5a + 35d
→ 15a + 5d = 0
→   3a + d = 0
→   d = -3(2) = -6

Sn = n/2[2a +(n - 1)d]
→ S20  = 20/2[2 × 2 + (20 - 1)(-6)]
= 10(4 - 114)
= -1100
