Accepted Solution

A:

ANSWER

The set of all rational numbers and the set of all real numbers.

EXPLANATION

The set of rational numbers contains all numbers that can be written in the form,

[tex] \frac{a}{b} [/tex]

where a and b are integers and b≠0.

The given number is

[tex] - \frac{1}{2} [/tex]

It belongs to the set of rational numbers.

The set of rational numbers is a subset of the set of real numbers.

Hence

[tex] - \frac{1}{2} [/tex]

also belongs to the set of real numbers.

The correct answer is A.

The set of all rational numbers and the set of all real numbers.
