  • Answer:

    integers are closed under division

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Integers are not closed under division.Let us consider two integers i and j.

    Then [tex]\[\frac{i}{j}\][/tex] need not necessarily be an integer. For example, 2 and 3 are integers but [tex]\[\frac{2}{3}\][/tex] is not an integer. So the first option , namely, integers are closed under division is not true.

    On the other hand, the remaining three options given are correct.
