A. x > 3
B. x < 3
C. x = 3
D. x ≠ 3
E. x < -3


Modulus of a number always tells us the absolute value or put simply the positive value of a number.
Modulus of a positive number will always be the same number
Modulus of a negative number will be just the positive part of the number


In this question, 3 is a positive number, hence |3| = 3
Hence we have \(|x|/3 > 1\)

or |x| > 3.
This means x > 3 or x <-3

Of the given options, the only option that does not hold good is Option D

Solving modulus inequality
If |x| > a, then the inequality will pan out as x > a and x< -a
If |x| < a, then the inequality will pan out as -a < x <a
