E

If -1 is in the set, then -1+2=1 is in the set, if 1 then 3, if 3 then 5.

If t+2=-1 is in the set than -3 is also in.

Hope this helps

-1 = t not t+2. so (i) is not possible. therefore D is correct....

'E' is correct!

all numbers 1, -3 & 5 should be there...

1) If t=-1 then t+2 = 1 & t+4 = 5

2) If t+2 = 1 then t = -3

Such number line approach is useful

t---------t+2----------t+4----------t+6 ..
(-1)-------1-------------3------------5
(-3)------(-1)-----------1------------3
(-5)------(-3)----------(-1)----------1

I would go with D.
Given "t in the set => t+2 in the set". Converse may not be true.
