starting with n=1,

cannot be (C)

Try (B)

3(1)+5=8, and terms increase by 3

1-th term ( n = 1 ) :

3 n + 5 = 3 * 1 + 5 = 3 + 5 = 8

2-th term ( n = 2 ) :

3 n + 5 = 3 * 2 + 5 = 6 + 5 = 11

3-th term ( n = 3 ) :

3 n + 5 = 3 * 3 + 5 = 9 + 5 = 14

4-th term ( n = 4 ) :

3 n + 5 = 3 * 4 + 5 = 12 + 5 = 17

8 , 11 , 14 , 17

Answer B
