Ans: D

three consecutive odd int of which t is minimum= t, t+2, t+4

so M= t+t+2+t+4 = 3t+6 ; so t= (M-6)/3

Now we need to find t+ t-2+t-4 = 3t -6

= 3(M-6)/2 -6 = M-6-6 = M-12Ans: D

We can also do this by putting values:

lets say t = 7 so M= 7+9+11 = 27

now 7+5+3 = 15 which is 27-12 = so M-12 is the ans.
