consider each one in turn
(a) - is x necessarily negative?

- anonymous

d?

- welshfella

1 is less than 2

- vanessaperezxo

ok, x can be anything less than 2... so it can be 1, 0, -1, -2, -3 etc.

- anonymous

@welshfella ,bt we cant say x will be negative as x can be =1 as well

- vanessaperezxo

So out of all the answers I would have to agree that D is the answer unless there is more to the question

- vanessaperezxo

Because x could be a negative and it could be a positive so that rules out a and b.

- welshfella

yes definitely not a or b

- anonymous

yup @vanessaperezxo

- vanessaperezxo

The 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

- welshfella

now as for c
x can be 1 and 1^2 = 1

- vanessaperezxo

So, that leaves you with D

- welshfella

but if x = 1.9 x^2 = 3.61

- anonymous

:( ....den what is the ans

- welshfella

none are always true

- vanessaperezxo

@welshfella but remember the question is telling you that x is less than 2.. so.. c is saying that x is greater than 2

- vanessaperezxo

tbh 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

- vanessaperezxo

If I could pick 2 I would go with a and b because it could be positive or negative.

- welshfella

no neither of them are always true - that's the key word ALWAYS

- welshfella

are you sure you have the questsion correct @yashiii

- anonymous

yup question is correct @welshfella

- vanessaperezxo

And the answers are correct too?

- anonymous

yup dr

- vanessaperezxo

ohhh wait! I got it!

- welshfella

if we take the answers as they are written then none of them are always true.

- vanessaperezxo

in 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

- vanessaperezxo

Because x can be a positive so thats true.. but x can also be a negative, which is also true!

- vanessaperezxo

- anonymous

okay dr
