amplitude 3: 3cos(...)

period p: 3cos(2pi(...)/p) ...

translate by (-1,1): 3cos(2pi(x+1)/p) + 1

So, it appears to be (D), if by p you mean pi.

16: (0,4): (C)

20: (A)

Your use of transition point appears unusual. In #13 the only possible interpretation, given the answer choices, is to use (-1,1) as coordinate translation. Yet transition points are usually max/min or inflection points. Using that same logic gives me (C) on #16.
