SAT Math Multiple Choice Practice Question 489: Answer and Explanation
9. If x + 6 > 0 and 1 – 2x > –1, then x could equal each of the following EXCEPT
Correct Answer: A
A The question is essentially asking which of the answers cannot be a value of x. So just try each answer one at a time by plugging the number into each of the two inequalities in the question, and see which one doesn't fit. If x = –6, is –6 + 6 > 0? No, because zero is not greater than zero. So –6 is the exception.
