You can either take two numbers and try this. Or you are already aware of the basics and just walk through the options.
I will go ahead with the number approach just for explanation.
Let's say a is +/-4 and b is +/-2
A. -4*-2 is -8. Not True.
E. -4/-2 is -2. Not True
B. -4*2 is 8. Not True.
D. -4/2 is 2. Not True.
C. 4/(-2) is -2. TRUE.

May be there is a better approach to deal with this for someone who does not know basics? I tried my best. Thank you
