**Hint**: We should know positive integers and negative integers. Difference between natural numbers and whole numbers. With all this information we will solve the question.

**Complete step-by-step answer**:

An integer is a whole number which can be positive or negative. Integers are positive and negative.

Negative integer is a number whose value is less than 0 lets say

x < 0 { all values of x which are less than zero)

Positive integer is a number whose value is more than 0 lets say

x > 0 { all values of x which are greater than 0)

From both the statements it is clear that positive integers are greater than negative integers.

Before integers we should know natural numbers and whole numbers.

Natural numbers are all those numbers which are greater than zero.

So there would be a question in your mind that what is zero?

And where zero lies?

So zero is considered as the whole number.

For example -2 is less than 0.

-25 is less than zero.

So the statement holds validity and every negative number is less than the natural number.

**So, the correct answer is “Option A”.**

**Note**: All positive integers are natural numbers . We have to learn a few things due to which we make mistakes like all natural numbers are whole numbers but all whole numbers are not natural numbers because 0 is a whole number.
