Hi. I was wondering whether the GMAT considers -2 or 1 the "smaller" number?

I am curious as to whether smaller means closer to zero, or closer to negative infinite.

Thanks.

HAHAHA, thanks sir, yes that is what I was asking. I wasn't sure if small was defined by relative distance to zero (or absolute value).
