If -1 is in the set then 1 (-1+2) should also be in the set. So 1 must be in the set.

now if t=-3 then t+2 = -1. -3 can be in the set, but we are not sure. -1 could be the first number in the set.

Is it B ??

IMO D

t=-1 => -1+2=1 is in the set
if 1 is in the set then 1+2 =3 has to be in the set
Hence this goes on neitherstart and end points are mentioned we are not sur of initial element ,t+1 must exist makes it necessary for all the elements to exist
