Notice that we are asked "which of the following numbers MUST also be present in the set M" not "COULD be in the set".
Now, if -4 is in the set, then -4+3=-1 must be in the set. Since -1 is in the set then -1+3=2 must be in the set. Could -7 be in the set? Certainly, but we don't know that for sure.

If -4 is part of the list, then -4+3(i.e -1) & -1+3(i.e 2) "MUST" be part of the set. Whereas -4-3(i.e -7) "COULD" be a part of the list Hence D is the answer. _________________

why -7 could be in the list? Why not must? why can't we use the rule backward?

If integer x is in the set then x+3 will also be in the set does NOT mean that the reverse must be true.
