The question is clearly about the convergence of \(\displaystyle \sum\limits_{n = 2}^\infty {\frac{1}{{{n^p}{{\left[ {\log (n)} \right]}^q}}}} \)

Do you know that if \(\displaystyle q>0\) then \(\displaystyle \sum\limits_{n = 2}^\infty {{\left[ {\log (n)} \right]}^{-q}}\) diverges ?

Now you need to show some of your own work.

yes i meant nWhat you've written can't be what you meant. This is a series over i but i does not appear in the summands.
