Some function [] rounds DOWN a number to the nearest integer. For example [1.5]=1, [2]=2, [-1.5]=-2, ...

Thus [-1.6]+[3.4]+[2.7]=-2+3+2=3.

Answer: A.

You are asked what the closest lesser integer value to [x] is.

[-1.6] = -2.0
[3.4] = 3.0
[2.7] = 2.0

Therefore , answer is: -2.0 + 3.0 + 2.0 = 3.0

Option A.
