The question is: "How can you tell from a velocity-time graph that you are moving in the negative?

I don't believe a velocity-time graph reveals that sort of information. Can't you only determine when the direction of motion has changed?

Perhaps you can...Would the answer be that the graph would lie under the time-axis?

If you mean going backwards, your velocity would be negative. Thus you would actually be reversing
