It seems my previous comment has been deleted, that's a bit irritating, but let's try to be more precise. The definition of an imaginary number is slightly wrong, and math doesn't suffer inaccuracy. i is defined as a solution of the equation x²+1=0 (the other one being of course -i), thus imaginary numbers are numbers whose square is a negative number. I know it seems to be the same, but the function square root is not well-defined on negative number, and cannot be in an analytic way. That function maps the positive real numbers on themselves. To say things otherwise, the square root of -1 (for example) is not well-defined since it could be i or -i indifferently.

The things people take offense to on this site continue to baffle me. It's like y'all need a 3 paragraph clue to get all of the little pedantry just right so you can properly answer the question. In the world of quiz writing, brevity is king.
