Maclaurin Series

Calculus Level 3

A function \(f\) is defined for all real numbers and satisfies \(f(0) = 1\), \(f^{(1)}(0) = 0\), \(f^{(2)}(0) = 0\), \(f^{(3)}(0) = -1\), \(f^{(4)}(0) = 0\), and in general \(f^{(k)}(0) = (-1)^{k}\) if \(k\) is divisible by 3 and \(f^{(k)}(0) = 0\) otherwise. What is the Maclaurin series of \(f\)?

\[ \] Clarification: In the answer choices, \(!\) denotes the factorial function. For example, \(8! = 1\times2\times3\times\cdots\times8 \).
