Question

# A diver is 20 feet below sea level. An integer to represent the situation is _________

- 20
- 10
- -20
- -10

Hint:

### The sea level is marked at zero. If you below the sea level, the distance would be marked as negative or else positive.

## The correct answer is: -20

### Given that a diver is 20 feet below the sea level. We know that sea level is marked at 0. So, if we go under the sea by x feet, then it would be marked as - x feet. Thus, we have 20 feet below the sea level marked as - 20 feet

Hence, the correct answer is option c.
