(A) for me :)

n < 0 and n^2 < 1/100...

Where is 1/n ?

n^2 < 1/100
<=> (-n)^2 < 1/100
<=> -n < 1/10 as the function sqr() increases when x increases on x >= 0
<=> (0 >) n > -1/10
<=> 1/n < -10 as n<0 and the function 1/x decreases when x increases on x < 0.

Fig thanks a bunch for your response

This is how I have proceeded

Since n is -ve

n^2 < 1/100 (given)

means n <1/-10 ( But the 1st choice is n<-10) this is where I got confused

Can you explain what is wrong with my approach?

The bold part is not equivalent to the original inequation. :)

U should look at the equation n^2 < 1/100 (without focussing on n> 0 or n<0).

n^2 < 1/100
<=> sqrt(n^2) < sqrt(1/100) (which is actually |n| < 1/10)
<=> -1/10 < n < 1/10

Then,
as n < 0, we have -1/10 < n < 0.
