$GP=\sqrt 7 , \sqrt {21} , 3 \sqrt 7 ,...............$

$a=\sqrt{7}\, \, \, \, and\, \, \, \, \, r=\frac{\sqrt{21}}{\sqrt{7}}=\sqrt{3}$

$S_n=\frac{a(1-r^n)}{1-r}$

$S_n=\frac{\sqrt{7}(1-\sqrt{3}^n)}{1-\sqrt{3}}$

$S_n=\frac{\sqrt{7}(1-\sqrt{3}^n)}{1-\sqrt{3}}\times \frac{1+\sqrt{3}}{1+\sqrt{3}}$

$S_n=\frac{\sqrt{7}(1-\sqrt{3}^n)}{1-3} (1+\sqrt{3})$

$S_n=\frac{\sqrt{7}(1-\sqrt{3}^n)}{-2} (1+\sqrt{3})$

$S_n=\frac{\sqrt{7}(1+\sqrt{3})}{2} (\sqrt{3}^n-1)$
