\[a _{n} = n - 5\] Is the proper sequence for this -5, -4, -3, -2, -1? Or is it -4, -3, -2, -1, 0?

in some courses, N is the set of non zero integers: 1,2,3,4,... in some courses, N is the set of non negative integers: 0,1,2,3,4,...

that first line is not stated correctly, N is the set of positive integers

so it all depends on your courses definition of N otherwise, you could define it yourself.
