Next three consecutive numbers in the pattern 11, 8, 5, 2, --, --, -- are
A. 0, –3, –6

B. –1, –5, –8

C. –2, –5, –8

D. –1, –4, –7

Answer :

Option D is the correct one. As per the given, consecutive number pattern 11, 8, 5, 2, .., ..,.. first term is the result of second number + 3 or we can say the difference between first and second is 3 so after 2, we get -1 as the number and -1 + 3 = -4 second number and -7 the third number.


So, the pattern will be


11, 8, 5, 2, -1, -4, -7


Option A 0, -3, -6 does not satisfy the given pattern


Option B -1, -5, -8 does not satisfy the given pattern


Option C -2,-5,-8 does not satisfy the given pattern
