**Question: 93**

**5.** In a list of consecutive odd integers, the second number can be represented by x. The first number in the list could be represented by

A. x - 3

B. x - 2

C. x - 1

D. x + 1

E. x + 2

**Correct Answer:** B

**Explanation:**

B. Don't fall into the old "odd-integers trap!" Even though the numbers are odd, they still must differ by 2. (If you don't believe me, think of 3, 5, 7 . . . .) Because the question tells you that the second number is x, the first one must be 2 less than x, or x - 2.
