# Which Is The the largest number ?

If x = – 4 and y = 4, which of the following gives the largest number ?

- x + y
- – x y
- x / y
- y – 1

**Answer: (2) – XY**

**Explanation:-**

X = -4 and Y = 4

(1) The value of X + Y = – 4 + 4 = 0

(2) The value of – XY = – ( -4 x 4) = – (16) = 16

(3) The value of X/Y = -4/4 = -1

(4) The value of Y – 1 = 4 – 1 = 3

Hence, the largest number is (2) – XY.
