B. \(-10^{-2}\)

C. \(-10^{-3}\)

D. \(-10^{-4}\)

E. \(10^{-4}\)


i.e. \(\frac{0.0019}{-x} > 2\)

i.e. \(0.0019<-2x\)

i.e. \(\frac{-0.0019}{2}>x\)

i.e. \(x < (1.9/2)*(-10^{-3})\)

Why does it feel like more than one option (A,B and E) may be correct here... :roll:

Thank you. The question should be "which of the following could be the value of x ?".

Correct one is here: https://gmatclub.com/forum/if-0-0019-x- ... 89040.html
