Isn't it B? The only integer that satisfies the inequality is 0. Why C?

Hi Paulli1982,

The Range for the above equation would be 0<=Z^2 < 2, as Z is an Integer then Z^2 = 0, 1. Hence 2 Values.

Hi Rahul,

I solved it this way:

Z^2<-4 which is not possible. Also z^2<2. Therefore range is 0<=z^2<2 as minimum value of perfect square is 0.

Please correct me if I am wrong here
