take a look at the first few of the Fibonacci numbers

1

1

2

3 --- term 4

5

8

13

21 --- term 8

34

55

89

144 -- term 12

...

Every term where the term number is divisible by 4, or, every 4th term will be divisible by 3

so if we have 1001 terms

then term 1000 will be divisible by 3 but term 1001 will not

so we have 1000/4 or 250 terms which are divisible by 3
