C.

consider from 4 to 50, you have 50/3 =~ 16 integers with remainder 1 when divided by 3.
Check the last one: 16*3 = 48 => 48+1 = 49, yes!
Then you have 1, which will also works.

So, total = 16+1 = 17

Duh I forgot about 1...3 divides into 1 0 times but the remainder is 1.

last term = first term + (n-1)d where d is the seperation factor

in our case

49=4+(n-1)3 <--- we are looking for number that when divide by 3 give remainder 1...

49-4+3=3n

48/3=16

so n=16...but remember its inclusive so you got to add 1...

17 it is
