Give examples of sequences of numbers that could be used for linear and logarithmic scales.

Do you mean sequences for both scales simultaneously?

If not simultaneously:

1,2,3,4,5,6,7

is pretty linear

and 1,10,100,1000,10000

is pretty logarithmic

So is 2,4,8,16,32,64 as long as you are in the log of base 2.

If simultaneously, I think 1,1,1,1,1,1,1 is both a linear sequence (one that is increasing by 0), and a logarithmic one of base 1.
