This means that y is a negative fraction

A when you square a negative fraction you get a smaller value positve fraction that is < +1

B when you subtract a negative fraction from 1 you get a number >1

C when you add a negative fraction to 1 you get a positve fraction < 1

D when you multiply 2 times a negative fraction ....you get a more negative number

Well A and B are our candidates

but the thing is that a will be a positive decimal whereas b will be >1
