Two series alternate here, with every third number following a different pattern.

In the main series, $3$ is added to each number to arrive at the next.

In the alternating series 5 is subtracted from each number to arrive at the next.

$4,7,10,13,16,19$ is one series.

$25,20$ is another series.

so missing number is $13$

Option $A$ is correct.
