Hi aksantana,

This question is just about doing careful Arithmetic and remembering what makes a number "bigger" or "smaller" compared to another number.

First, let's take care of the Arithmetic:

(-2) + (0.5) = -1.5

On a number line, since we're ADDING +.5 to a number, the total moves to the RIGHT (so we're moving from -2 to -1.5).

Next, the question asks for the LEAST integer that is GREATER than -1.5

Again, we can use a number line. Numbers become greater as you move to the RIGHT. The first INTEGER to the right of -1.5 is -1.

Final Answer:

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

\(-(2)+ (0.5) = -1.5\)

Least integer greater than \((-1.5)\) is \((-1)\)

Answer (B)
