I'm pretty sure the GMAT does not test the difference between ) and ]

I changed e to = 3 for the sake of easy numbers.

3a^(-a) > ab^-b and a < b


I first tested to see if a could be less than 1 and I used -3. Then made b = -2

\(-9^3\) > \(-6^2\)

This does not work.

Now try a >1 and b > a

Make a = 2 and b = 3

\(\frac{1}{6}\) > \(\frac{1}{9}\)

This works

Answer: A
