In the set that consists of 6 consecutive negative numbers,
if the smallest number is x, the largest number will be x+5

The range for any such set will be x+5 - x = 5(Option C)

P.S this is the case for all consecutive integers - negative or positive

Alternate method


Let the set be -6,-5,-4,-3,-2,-1(6 consecutive negative numbers)
The range of such of a set is largest - smallest = -1 - (-6) = -1 + 6 = 5

the set consists of six consecutive numbers, it doesn't matter what the numbers are, whether they are negative or positive.
The range is fixed, Largest number - smallest number = x +5 -x =5
