Find nth term or function $\displaystyle f(n)$ that defines the sequence $\displaystyle 2,2,0,0,0,....\; \; $ (infinite zeros after second term)

$\displaystyle f(n) = 1  \frac{2n  5}{2n  5}$, where $n$ is a positive integer.

Another one is $\displaystyle f(n)=n \lfloor \frac{2}{n} \rfloor$

$$f(n) = \begin{cases}2 & ( n \le 2 ) \\ 0 & (n \gt 2)\end{cases} \qquad n \in \mathbb N$$

Here comes the other one $\displaystyle f(n)=2\lfloor 2^{1} +n^{1} \rfloor$
