3. (15, 20, 43)
4. (12, 19, 40)
The correct answer is option 4 i.e. (12, 19, 40)
The pattern followed here is,
(First number + 7) = Second number, (Second number + 21) = Third number
(17, 24, 45) → 17 + 7 = 24, 24 + 21 = 45
Similarly,
Option 4 → (12, 19, 40) → 12 + 7 = 19, 19 + 21 = 40
Option 3 → (15, 20, 43) → 15 + 5 = 20, 20 + 23 = 43
