△= 3 Sufficient.

Yes, zero is not positive, nor negative. But don't forget that it's even.

Zero is even? Why?

From GMAT Club Math book, Number properties chapter:
math-number-theory-88376.html

Even and Odd Numbers

An even number is an integer that is "evenly divisible" by 2, i.e., divisible by 2 without a remainder.
An even number is an integer of the form n=2k, where k is an integer.

An odd number is an integer that is not evenly divisible by 2.
An odd number is an integer of the form n=2k+1, where k is an integer.

Zero is an even number.
