Since the number \(\frac{1}{N}\) is negative \(N\) must be negative.

So we have points A and B which are possible.

Since the figure is drawn to scale. Then the point \(\frac{1}{N}\) is more that \(-0.5\). The N must be greater that 2.

So only option that fits is A.

Isn't 1/N actually greater than -0.5? (as per direction) so wouldn't N be on the right of 1/N?

You are right. \(\frac{1}{N}\) is more than \(-0.5\). The absolute value of \(\frac{1}{N}\) is less than 0.5.
