    as you can see in graph the line shows the values of x would be less then -1... so u know ur answer should be x< -1

    now solve each of the options u have and see for which option u get x< -1

    Wait, so.. Bleehhh so if x is less than or equal to -1, shouldn't option C be right? -6 ≤ -6

    you need to solve for x, and then see which value of x is less than negative 1
