figured out the 1st two

one more

4) If s and t are two different #s on the number line, is s + t = 0 ?

A) distance between s and 0 is the same as distance between s and t
B) 0 is between s and 0

Still unable to figure out 3) and 4) , probably missing something trivial .. would be great if one og you guys enlighten me

for problem 3)

well, i got stuck in the same question, probably over thought,

for any line with a negative slope, it should intersect quadrant 2 - agreed

but only if the line extends infinitely on both directions !!

the line can entirely lay on quad4 and still have negative slope !
(any line parallel to a line with slope -1/6 )

so guess the question should have told that the line is infinite or it should have given some end points ..

since its a DS problem, i read too much into it and chose E !

any inputs on the above ?
