No, it is not a solution.

Work Step by Step

To solve for this you input (-1,4) into the equation $y\lt2x+5$, replacing -1 for the $x$ and 4 for the $y$. $(4)\lt2(-1) + 5$ Then, solve: $4\lt3$ This now reads 4 is less than three which cannot be true which means that (-1,4) is not a solution of the inequality.
