Radii of convergence for complex series

I need to find the radii of convergence for these series:

$1. \sum_{n=1}^\infty (2+(-1)^n)^n z^{2n}$

$2. \sum_{n=1}^\infty (n+a^n)z^n, a \in C $

$3. \sum_{n=1}^\infty 2^n z^{n!}$

Starting with the first power series, I attempted this by claiming that $$a_n =(2+(-1)^k)^k$$ if $n = 2k, k\ge 1$, and $0$ otherwise. Then,

$$|a_n|^{1/n} = ((2+(-1)^k)^k)^\frac{1}{2k}= \sqrt{(2+(-1)^k}$$

$$ \limsup|a_n|^{1/n} = \limsup = \sqrt{(2+(-1)^k} = \sqrt3$$

The radius of convergence is $\frac{1}{\sqrt3}$. I would just like to confirm if this approach is feasible, and if not, what I should change about it.

As for the second series, my first idea was to split up the sum like this:
$$\sum_{n=1}^\infty (n+a^n)z^n = \sum_{n=1}^\infty nz^n + \sum_{n=1}^\infty (az)^n $$

Is it acceptable to say that the radius of convergence for this one is the radii of convergences of the two series that were broken up?

Lastly, for the third, I was considering using a ratio test for this one, but I fail to see how that would help me, nor do I see how any other option would be helpful.

Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you!

Looks like your answer for the first one is fine.

For the second one, consider the power series $\sum_n (1-1)z^n.$ Obviously the radius of convergence is $\infty.$ But if you split it up, as you are hoping is a legal maneuver, you are left with $\sum_n z^n + \sum_n (-1)z^n.$ The radius of convergence of both of these power series is $1,$ but that’s a long way from being correct for the original power series. So you’ll need to think about $\sum (n+a^n)z^n$ some more.

For the third one, the ratio test works just fine: The ratios of absolute values are

$$\tag 1 2|z|^{(n+1)! -n!} = 2|z|^{nn!}.$$

If $|z|<1,$ $(1)\to 0$ fast, so we have convergence. If $|z|>1,$ $(1) \to \infty$ fast, so we have divergence. That’s enough to nail down the radius of converge: It’s $1.$
