Accepted Solution

Answer:Option A - PositiveStep-by-step explanation:Given : Expression [tex]\frac{-x}{-y}[/tex] when [tex]x>0,\ y>0[/tex]To find : What is the sign of the expression ?Solution : Expression [tex]\frac{-x}{-y}[/tex]when [tex]x>0,\ y>0[/tex]We know that, When a negative unit is divided by a negative unit then the negative sign became positive sign as negative sign get cancel in numerator and denominator.So, [tex]\frac{-x}{-y}=\frac{x}{y}[/tex]The sign of expression is positive.Therefore, option A is correct.
