C.

If t = -1, t+2 = 1
if t+2 = -1, t = -3

Yes should be D.
-1 could be the first element.

D.
-1 is in the set only means that -1+2= 1 is in the set, which also means that 1+2=3 is also in the set.
-3 does not have to be in the set since the first number in the set could be -1.

Why it cant be E. Why are you assuming that -1 is the first member in the set ? My unanimous choice was E. Am is wrong here ?

Because the question says, "which of the following MUST be in the set"

We only know for a fact that if a number is in the set, so is 2 plus that number. But that doesn't imply that the number is in the set BECAUSE of a previous number.

We know -1 is there. It implies that 1 is there, which pushes us to 3, which pushes us to 5. Those are "MUSTS". But it doesn't mean that -3 MUST be there.
