I have tried some values for x :
1 -> NOK
2 -> OK
1/2 -> NOK
-1 -> NOK
-1/2 -> OK

So, after calculating some values (which is quick), you can conclude that :

-1<x<0 and 1<x

So, yes, solution B, x MUST be superior to -1.
nota bene : the solution x=1/2 does not satisfy the question's inequality, but the question is not to define the range of possibilities for x!

Question is OK but the answer choices are wrong. If I say x>1 isn't that always true?

Good language trap. Could anyone please more such questions in which the language is convoluted. Thanks Bunuel
