A. -4 and -1
B. -1 and 4
C. -4 and 1
D. -2 and 5
E. 2 and 5



From the first inequality,

\(2x + 7 > 5\)

\(x > -1\)

From the second inequality,

\(5x - 13 < 7\)

\(x <\) \(\frac{20}{5}\)

\(x < 4\) approx

Therefor (B) \(-1 < x < 4\)

i.e. x > -1

Also, 5x - 13 < 7

Min value of x in 2x + 7 > 5 must be -

2x > -2

Or, x > - 1

Max value of x in 5x - 13 < 7 must be -

5x < 20

Or, x < 4

So, x must be between -1 and 4 , and answer will hence be (B)
