50 = 3*m +1 (Since 50 is the max value)

m max is value = 16

there are 16 multiples of three that are less than 50
3*16 = 48
but 1/3 = 0 remainder 1
so 17

a=1, d=3 and last term=49

49=1+(n-1)3
51/3=17=n(ANS)

OA is 17, but where do you find 1 more
as we have only 16 (from 4 to 49 inclusive)?

don't forget 1, when it divides by 3, it also has a remainder of 1
