I. -3 II. 1 III. 5
A. I only
B. II only
C. I and II only
D. II and III only
E. I, II, and III

here's the OA:

Series property: t => t+2. (Note: for any given number N, ONLY N + 2 is compulsory. N - 2 is not a necessity as N could be the first term...this can be used as a trap.)
Given: -1 belongs to the series. => 1 => 3 =>5. DOES NOT imply -3.
Hence, II and III (D).

D it is ..

since -1 is there 1 has to be there
similarly since 1 is there 3 has to be there
so is 5

-3 may or may not be there...
