$-x \qquad x < 0 \qquad x=0$
$+x \qquad x >0 \qquad x=0$
$\int \limits_{-1}^0 (-x^2)dx +\int \limits_0^{1} x^2 dx$
=> $ -\bigg[ \large\frac{x^3}{3}\bigg] +\bigg[ \large\frac{x^3}{3} \bigg]_0^1$
=> $-\bigg[0-\large\frac{(-1)^3}{3} \bigg] +\bigg[ \large\frac{1}{3} -0\bigg]$
=> $ \large\frac{-1}{3} +\frac{1}{3} =0$
Hence c is the correct answer.
