    Is having $3 as debt worse than having $4 as debt ?

    No having $4 as debt is worse

    You may think of negative numbers as debt.

    Exactly! so `-3 < -4` is false, because having $3 as debt is better than having $4 as debt

    Oh ok D because I know that b is equal to each other and a is like c but with different numbers

    D is also wrong. any positive number is always greater than a negative number

    Yes. -3/4 is same as -3/4 so -3/4 <= -3/4 is a true statement
