Well.... U make it right :)... There are 2 solutions equally good :).... That's simply not possible for a GMAT question.

What is the source of that question? :)

I have checked it :)... U should look at it well... The point A is at -2... but E is, indicated by the arrow, just before 2 :)

So the answer is unique and it is A :)

This is SUCH an ASININE question. There is no remarkable difference to even suggest that the arrow is not directly above the numbers

I checked it too. At first I was looking on page 194. It lines up all the arrows on the integers -2, -1, 0, 1, 2... so ya i can see where u were gettin confused.

However, if you look at the original problem on page 154 its very obvious that A is the correct answer. I think this is a typo on page 194.
