One option is to sketch the region and check each point, but TESTING THE ANSWER CHOICES might be faster.

NOTE: this is one of those questions that require us to check/test each answer choice. In these situations, always check the answer choices from E to A, because the correct answer is typically closer to the bottom than to the top.

For more on this strategy, see my article: http://www.gmatprepnow.com/articles/han ... -questions

E. (0, -14)
Plug in x and y values to get: 2(-14) ≤ 6(0) − 12
Simplify: -28 ≤ -12
This satisfies the inequality, which means the point lies INSIDE the region.
ELIMINATE E

D. (1, -2)
Plug in x and y values to get: 2(1) ≤ 6(-2) − 12
Simplify: 2 ≤ -24
This DOES NOT satisfy the inequality, which means the point lies OUTSIDE the region.

Answer:
[Reveal] Spoiler:
D


Cheers,

E. (0, -14)


Equation given is 2y<=6x-12
Simplifying this; y<=3x-6
Plug in the values provided in the options,

A. 1<=11
B. -8<=3
C. 0<=0
D. -2<=-3
E. -14<=-12

Option D is the answer.

Simplify the inequality to get: y <= 3x - 6

Plot this inequality by using the method discussed here:
http://www.veritasprep.com/blog/2011/01 ... -part-iii/

Plot y = 3x - 6. The two points through which it passes are (0, -6) and (2, 0). Now put (0, 0) and you will find that the inequality is not satisfied. So the region we are considering is the one other than the one where (0, 0) lies. Now you can easily see which points do lie and which do not lie in our region.

This question is simply saying which coordinate pair does not satisfy the equation- just plug in the answer choices

Thus

"D"

this question can be easily solved by simplifying the equation to 3x-y >= 6. only option D does not satisfy the equation. hence answer is D
