#### Answer:

No. It is an arithmetic sequence.

#### Explanation:

A geometric sequence is defined by the ratio between each number in the sequence being a multiplier. In this case each successive number is being diminished by 2, not multiplied by any number, so it is called an arithmetic sequence.
