(1)
-2(x+5)<-1
2(x+5)>1
2x+10>1
2x>-9
x>-4.5
-4.5<x
Not Sufficient.

(2)
-3x>9
3x<-9
x<-3
Not Sufficient.

Combining both;
-4.5<x<-3
Only integer that satisfies this condition is -4
Sufficient.

Ans: "C"

Hi..

Both the statement individually give value of x in INEQUALITy, so insufficient

let's see combined

(1) \(–2(x + 5) < –1........2(x+5)>1......x+5>\frac{1}{2}......x>\frac{-9}{2}\), so -4,-3,-2,....
(2) \(–3x > 9.......3x<-9.......x<-3\), so -4,-5,-6....

ONLY common value is -4
suff

C
