Keep in mind that you cannot select "-2, -1, 0" from T, b/c M contains all negative so products will be positive or zero.

M = {-6, -5, -4, -3, -2}
T = {-2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3}

Total no. of cases = 5*6 = 30
No. of cases when product is -ve possible for M= {-6, -5, -4, -3, -2}, and T= {1, 2, 3}= 5 * 3 = 15

Probability = 15/30 = 1/2

possibility of selecting a negative number from M is 1
possibility of selecting a negative number from T is 3/6
=> 1*3/6=1/2
