In a single round Robin drops 6 morsels.

Remainder (2000/6) = 2

Final action = 2 drops of Wheat --> Options B, D and E can be eliminated
A cannot be the answer as the pattern doesn't indicate 2 actions of wheat together.
Only option C fits in.

Alternate approach:
Remainder = 2. So, Last 4 actions = Wheat White Rye Wheat

you are absolutely correct in your approach but the highlighted portion is not correct

Yes. You are right. I have taken the actions instead of morsels. Stupid error!!!

Robin is traveling from one end of a forest to the other. In order to find her way back, she is leaving morsels of bread in the following pattern: 2 morsels of wheat, 3 morsels of white, and 1 morsel of rye. The pattern repeats after she leaves the morsel of rye. If Robin drops 2,000 morsels of bread, what are the last 3 morsels of bread that she drops?

A. rye − wheat − wheat
B. wheat − wheat − white
C. white − rye − wheat
D. white − white − white
E. white − white − rye

'
W1 W2 W3 W4 W5 R ------ 2000/6 = REMINDER = 2

so the token stops at W2

so last 3 will be R W1 W2
