The sequence is arithmetic.

#### Explanation:

An arithmetic sequence has a common difference, meaning you use addition or subtraction to get from term to term, and each term in the sequence is an equal distance apart.

A geometric sequence has a common ratio, meaning that you use multiplication or division to get from term to term.

If you look at this sequence:

14-2 = 12

12-2 = 10

10-2 = 8

8 -2 = 4

etc.

Because you are subtracting 2 each time, 2 is the common difference, and the sequence is arithmetic.
