Dear Student

Option (C) is true i.e only when the integer is positive
For example : consider the positive integer 5 = 5 + 5 = 10
In positive integer the sum is greater than the integer.
But in negative integer -4 = -4 + (-4)

=-4–4

=-8
In negative integer the sum is less than the integer.

Thanks
