For this one, you just have to test out numbers
For the first one it says, for n < 0, the value is greater than 1.
So lets say n = -5 for example
(5^-5)(5^5) = 1. 1 is not greater than 1, so that one's out
The second one says for all n, the answer is 0.
Well, we just saw n = 5 turns out to be 1 and 1 does not equal 0, so that one's out too
For the third one, it says for all n<0, its less than 1
Again 1 is not less than 1, so that's wrong
Now we have D. For all values n, it equals 1
1 does = 1, so lets try n =10 to be safe
(5^-10)(5^10) indeed equals 1, so the answer is D, the last choice
