Let d be the common difference in A.P.
 
If sum of p terms zero, then we have,  2a +(p-1)d = 0   or  2a+pd = d   and d = -2a/(p-1)  ...................(1)
 
sum S of next q terms,  S = (q/2)[ 2(a+pd) + (q-1)d ] = (q/2) [ 2a + pd +pd +(q-1)d ] = (q/2)[p+q]d = -a (p+q)  [ q/(p-1) ] .................(2)
 
It is to be noted that in eqn.(2) we have used 2a+pd = d and d = -2a/(p-1) as given in eqn.(1)
