If the positive square root (for example, square root of 2) is irrational, then the corresponding negative square root (for example, minus square root of 2) is also irrational.

Negative has nothing to do with the property of being rational or not. A negative number might be rational or irrational. Rational numbers are ones that can be written as fractions such as 1/5. The number -1/5 is also rational. Ones that cannot be written as fractions are irrational such as the square root of 2, but the negative square root of two is also irrational.
