What numbers should come next?

#### Select the correct answer

Solution!
This is a simple subtraction with repetition series.
It begins with 20, which is repeated, then 3 is subtracted, resulting in 17, which is repeated, and so on.
Rule = (1st no.), (1st no.), (1st no. - 3 = 2nd no.), (2nd no. repeat), (2nd no. - 3 = 3rd no.), (3rd no. repeat)...
Now in our case, (20), (20), (20 - 3 = 17), (17), (17 - 3 = 14), (14), (14 - 3 = 11), (11), (11 - 3 = 8), (8)...
So the answer is c = 11, 8..
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30
