is |x| < 1?

We know that x can be any value less that 1 unit away from zero.

Therefore, what we really wanna know is if -1 < x < 1

Statement 1:
x^2 < 1

Sq. rt. (x^2) < sq. rt. (1)

=> |x| < 1

Sufficient!

Statement 2:
x < 1/2

Therefore, -1/2 < x < 1/2
=> x is between -1 and 1!

Sufficient!

Ans: 'D'

From 1, it is clear that :

x^2 < 1 => (x-1)(x+1) < 0, so x is between -1 and 1 (not inclusive)

From 2, it is evident as well.
