I get A)

1) n + 1 is divisible by 3
4+7n can be written as 7n + 7 - 3 => 7(n+1)-3
Since, 7(n+1) is divisible by 3, and 3 is divisible by 3 => 4+7n is divisible by 3 with a remainder r=0

2) n>20 insuff. Depending on the value of n .. r can take multiple values.
e.g. when n = 21, remainder is 1 (4+7n = 151) and when n=23 (4+7n=165), remainder is 0.

My answer is A.
4 + 7n can be written as (6n + 6) + (n-2), if n+1 is divisible by 3, 6n+6 is also divisible by 3.
And, if n+1 is divisible by 3, then (n-2) is also divisible by 3. Hence 4+7n is divisible by 3, and the remainder is zero.

From st2
N can take different numbers greater than 20, and will not help.

Hence the answer is A.
