A series $\text{S1}$ of five positive integers is such that the third term is half the first term and the fifth term is $20$ more than the first term. In series $\text{S2},$ the nth term defined as the difference between the $(n+1)$ term and the $n^{\text{th}}$ ... is an arithmetic progression with a common difference of $30$. Second term of $\text{S2}$ is $50$ $60$ $70$ $\text{None of these}$
