The set S = {5, 13, 21, 29, ..................... }

1st Number = 8 * 0 + 5 = 5

2nd Number = 8 * 1 + 5 = 13

3rd Number = 8 * 2 + 5 = 21

76th Number = 8 * (76-1) + 5 = 605

Answer = A

S = 8x + 5
So, terms in S are in A.P. with first term = 5 and common difference = 8
76th term = a + (76 – 1)d = 5+ (75)8= 605
