I am ok with all the answers but C. If x = -(1/2), then x^2+x = 1/4-1/2 = -1/2 that is equal to x. So it is not true that x^2+x must be greater than x.

Am I right? Or am I just tired that I do not get why C is ok?

Think x = 0.5 that is an exactly half way between -1 and zero.

-0.5 elevated to the third power becomes -0.125 that is on the number line is closer to zero than -0.5. Which means -0.125 is on the right side of -0.5


-1 ------------- -0.5 ----------------- - 0.125------------ zero

A is correct.

Hope this helps.
