# 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

**Solution:**

The given pattern follows the series as 11, 8, 5, 2, --, --, --. If we carefully observe, in the given sequence of numbers, each number is differ by 3. This means the previous number is more than 3 or the next number in the sequence is less than 3.

Now the last number in the sequence is 2. Following the pattern and using the integers rules the next three consecutive numbers are:

2 - 3 = -1

-1 - 3 = -4

-4 - 3 = -7

Therefore, the next three consecutive numbers in the pattern 11, 8, 5, 2, --, --, -- are -1, -4, -7.
