Yes answer should be B.
Given:
If a positive integer is there in set S then it's negative is also there AND product of every possible combination of any two integers is also there.

eg. if 1 is there, S = { -1,1,-1 }
if 2 is there, S = {-2,2,-4}

Agree with B.

(1): Based on i & ii S includes 1, -1 & -1x1. Not suff. to determine if -4 is in S.
(2): Based on i & ii S includes 2, -2 & -2x2=-1 is in S. Suff.!

agree with B.
if 2 is in S then -2 will be in S
and since, 2 and -2 are in S so, (2*-2) or -4 will be in S.
