hi,

you can easily see that a will be some negative value and b will be some positive value

here the comparison is between -3a and 3b..
since a is negative -3a will be POSITIVE and also b is positive so 3b will be positive..
1) a=-2, b=2......-3a=3b
2) a=-1, b=2......-3a<3b
3) a=-2, b=1......-3a>3b
so all possiblities are there.

answer is E

Answer is Cannot be determined. From the given graph we can conclude that a (a y coordinate in 4th quadrant) seeks a negative value where as b (y-coordinate in 2nd Quadrant) seeks +ve value. Since we dont the exact values of a and b and the figure is not to scale we can establish a relation between -a and b.
