Because what is less than 5? 6 < 5 and 7 < 5 etc. Okay, now tell me why the last one is NOT the answer.

?? No, it includes 6, doesn't it? We already established that 6 < 5. Okay, how about the number 9. Is 9 > 5?

Try again. The third set is finite and contains no integer greater than 5.

We certainly ruled out the other three! Good work.

so it is {−5, −4, −3, …} !!!

Hold on. I didn't see the fourth one correctly. It does NOT contain 6. It is only POSITIVE numbers. It's problem is twofold. 1) It contains nonintegers, like 3/2 and \(\sqrt{2}\) 2) It fails to contains 3, whcih clearly is greater than 5.

so what does that mean.... ?

Nothing new. We ruled it out incorretly, before, but we just ruled it out correctly, so it's still gone and #2 is still the right one. Sorry for confusion.
