Solution

## The correct option is C 12The given numbers are −12, 0, 12, and −2We can write 0 and −2 as 01 and −21 respectively.For comparing all the 4 rational numbers, we have to make their denominators same.Hence, multiplying 22 with 01 and −21.Now, the numbers will be:−12, 02, 12 and −42Comparing the numerators, we get:−4<−1<0<1Hence, the rational number with numerator 1 is the greatest.Hence, 12 is the greatest of all the given numbers.
