A. 36 B. 32 C. 28 D. 24 E. 20 List G = {7,6,5,4,3,2,1,0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7} sum of all negative integers in List G = (1+2+3+4+5+6+7) =28 Hence Option C is correct. Hit Kudos if you liked it

A. 36 B. 32 C. 28 D. 24 E. 20 Since the sum of n consecutive integers equals the mean multiplied by the number of terms n; and since the mean of any evenly spaced set (like these) equals the median which is obviusly equal to 0,even the sum of the list G will be 0 Now we have to subtract the sum of the positive integers which is : mean*7, (1+7)/2 *7= 28 sure 028=28 Correct answer is C.

A. 36 B. 32 C. 28 D. 24 E. 20 Total Numbers in list = 15 Greatest = 7 i.e. 7 Positive Integers One must be Zero (a critical step which if not considered might lead to inaccuracies) so other 7 must be Negative ranging from 1 to 7 Sum of Negative Numbers from 1 to 7 = 28 Answer: Option C

A. 36 B. 32 C. 28 D. 24 E. 20 Just have to remember to be careful  in this series 0 counts as an integer so actually 7/2 ( 8 + 1) 7/2(9) 56/2 = 28 Thus "C"

G has 15 consecutive integers. The greatest integer is 7. => 0 to 7 = (Total 8 integers). => 7 to 1 = ( 7+6+5+4+3+2+1). => Sum of 'n' natural numbers: \(\frac{n(n+1) }{ 2}\) => \(\frac{7 * 8 }{ 2}\) => 28. Sum of all negative integers in List G = 28 Answer C
