It should be A.

I - pretty obvious from the graph line.
II - From the graph we know, 2 < x < 3

multiplying by - 1 would flip signs.

-2 > x > -3

so x cannot be smaller than -3.

III -

0 < 2x - 3 < 1

adding 3 to all 3.

3 < 2x < 4

dividing by 2

3/2 < x < 2

but we know x is between 2 and 3 and not 1.5 and 2.

From the graph given ,
2<x<3
=> 2<x< 4

II. – x < – 3
=> x > 3 , this is false

III. 0 < 2x – 3 < 1
=> 3< 2x < 4
=> 3/2 < x < 2 , this is false

Answer A

I. From the number line, 2<x<4. True
II. x < 3, flipping the sign gives -x > -3. Not true.
III. Pick a number closest to 2, say 2.1
2x - 3 = 2*2.1 - 3 = 4.2 - 3 = 1.2 > 1
So, 0 < 2x - 3 < 1 Not true.

Ans A. I only.
