New to knitting ,help to understand pattern needed?

ive got to a point in a pattern that reads increase one stitch at each end of 3rd and every following (4th) row.
A does this mean increase on the 3rd and 4th row,then go back to row 1

B does it mean increase on row 3 then every 4th row after

i hope you can understand what i mean
