There must be a mistake here. The 2 smallest numbers should be 17 and 19 which are nowhere to be found in answer choices.

Correct, I found the same problem.

This is the second question I see from Peterson with an "might be" mistake. I am not familair with Peterson, but is Peterson worth to work with?

I would say that their SC is quite good. Their CR is very bad though. There were some very ambiguous math questions. Overall, I would have a neutral rating for Peterson

Answer is A. Paul, u might have missed the point that -37 is less than -35.
