Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok, x can be anything less than 2... so it can be 1, 0, 1, 2, 3 etc.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@welshfella ,bt we cant say x will be negative as x can be =1 as well

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So out of all the answers I would have to agree that D is the answer unless there is more to the question

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Because x could be a negative and it could be a positive so that rules out a and b.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes definitely not a or b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The question is telling you that x is less that 2 (x<2) so there is no possible way that the answer is c... because x can NOT be greater than 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now as for c x can be 1 and 1^2 = 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@welshfella but remember the question is telling you that x is less than 2.. so.. c is saying that x is greater than 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1tbh d only makes sense because it says anything less than 2... but it also says less than or equal to and the problem doesn't tell you it's equal to it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If I could pick 2 I would go with a and b because it could be positive or negative.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if we take the answers as they are written then none of them are always true.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in this answer you can pick more than one! So the answer is A and B.... Because it is asking which one is ALWAYS TRUE.. A and B are always true... always

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Because x can be a positive so thats true.. but x can also be a negative, which is also true!
