Dav5599 - are these numbers correct?
The set = 35, but 37 of the 35 are negative?

17 of 35 consecutive integers are negative.
(35 - 17) = 18 terms left.
The first number after -1 is 0.
(18 - 1) = 17 terms left: all positive.

\(-17, -16, ... -2, -1, 0, 1, 2 ... 16, 17\)
The 17 negative integers cancel the 17 positive integers; the sum of 34 of the numbers is 0. Add to the remaining number, 0. (0 + 0) = 0

Answer C

**If not sure, take fewer numbers, with an odd number of terms:
-3 + (-2) + (-1) + 0 + 1 + 2 + 3 = 0

Sum of negative: -6
Sum of positive: 6
Add 0: (-6 + 6 + 0) = 0
