Work Step by Step

x$\div$5 $\lt$x is true for all values of x greater than 0 because when you plug in 0, you'll get 0$\div$5$\lt$0=0$\lt$0, which isn't true because 0 is not greater than 0. This inequality is also false for all negative values on the number line because a negative number divided by 5 will always result in a larger number. Therefore, a group member chosen at random will sometimes have a true statement.
