Let’s isolate x in each inequality.

x + 5 > 2

x > -3

Next we simplify x – 3 < 7.

x – 3 < 7

x < 10

We know that x is greater than -3 and less than 10.

The answer is A.

x+5 > 2
taking 5 on other side, we get: x > 2-5; x > -3

x - 3 < 7

taking -3 on other side, we get: x > 3+7; x > 10

x lies between -3 and 10

Option A is correct answer.
