The answer is

\[\frac{1}{1-x}-\frac{1}{1-x^{1024}}\]

\(\Rightarrow p=1024\)

In each term, add one and subtract one from numerator. Then split term into two and you will see that it is a telescopic series.

Thanx man for the help.

the general term of series cannot be determined

it has its answer as p=1024
