The range of given numbers is 50-0+1=51
Any number when divided by 3 can give remainders from the list {0,1,2}. This patten will repeat for every 3 numbers. Hence divide the range by number of available remainders. i.e 51/3=17

My ans is also C.17.

Explanation:

1 also gives 1 remainder when divided by 3, another number is 4, then 7 and so on.
Hence we have an arithmetic progression: 1, 4, 7, 10,..... 49, which are in the form 3n+1.
Now we have to find out number of terms.
tn=a+(n-1)d, where tn is the nth term of an AP, a is the first term and d is the common difference.
so, 49 = 1+(n-1)3
or, (n-1)3 = 48
or, n-1 = 16
or, n = 17


Hello,

I like this solution using the arithmetic progression but in the expression tn=a+(n-1)d why n-1 and not n ?

As I know Un= U0 + n r where U0 is the first terme and r is the common difference.

Thx in advance for the lighting !

I chose C

Since 3 has 16 multiples b/t 0-50 there must be 16 with a remainder of 1. But also \(1/3\) is included in this list. so 16+1=17=C

Calculated the same. \(\frac{Last R1 - First R1}{3} +1 = \frac{(49 - 1)}{3} +1 = 16 + 1 = 17\).

Testing the answer choices if another multiple is needed or if there are one too many. This proved that C was the correct answer.

A. 15 * 3 = 45. 50-45 = R5. Too low.
B. 16 * 3 = 48. 50-48 = R2.
C. 17 * 3 = 51. 50-51 = R1, which is in line with what the question asks.
D. 18 * 3 = 54. 54-50= R4. Too high
E. 19 * 3 = 57. 57-50= R7.Too high
