f(n) = 3N+4

assume n = 0,1,2,3,4,

f(n) belongs to { 4,7,10,13} arithmatic sequence with a difference of 3

my answer is thus 8 E

Plugging values.For n=20 , we get 64. And 8 is a factor of 64.Hence I beleive the answer is 6- (C).

3n+4=3(n+1)+1, so when 3n+4 is divided by 3, the remainder is 1.

Thus 3n+4 is not a multiple of 3.
