If x is less than 2, which of the following statements are always true?

I. x is negative(No, because x could be 1)
II. x is positive.(No, because x could be -2)
III. 2x is greater than or equal to x
(No, if x=-5, 2x=-10 which is smaller than x)
IV. x² is greater than or equal to x.
(No, if x=1/2,x^2=1/4, which is smaller than x)

Hence Option E(none of the statements) is the correct answer option!

If x< 2,

I. x is negative
x< 2=> x =1 , x=-1 ..ie x is negative : Not always true
II. x is positive.
x< 2=> x =1 , x=-1 ..ie x is positive : Not always true
III. 2x is greater than or equal to x
x< 2
=> x =1 => 2x> x => 2>1 true
=> x =-1 => 2x> x => -2>-1 False
IV. x² is greater than or equal to x.
x< 2
=> x =1 => x^2>= x => 1>=1 true
=> x =-1 => x^2> x => 1>= -1 true
=> x =1/2 => x^2> x => 1/4>= 1/2 False

None agree with "Must be True" condition
