(-6x+6)/2-12<6
(-6x+6)/2<6+12
(-6x+6)/2<18
-6x+6<36
-6x<30
x>-5

I. x = 10 (x>-5) => it's the answer
II. x = -5 (x=-5) => no it's wrong
III.x = -10 (-10<-5) = > wrong again

===> answer is A

\(\frac{{−6x+6}}{2}−12 < 6\)

\(\frac{{−6x+6}}{2} < 18\)

\(-6x + 6 < 36\)

\(-6x < 30\)

\(x > -5\)

None of the options except (A) satisfies the condition , hence answer will be (A)

'A' is the answer.

(-6x+6)/2-12-5

Out of given option 'x' could only be 10
