If x is not equal to 0, is |x| less than 1?

x > x/|x|
|x| > x

Statement I :

x > x/|x| so this hold true when x > 1
2 > 2/2 -- true
x = -2
-2 > -2/2 = -2 > -1 not true therefore x > 1

Statement II :

(2) |x| > x states that x <0> -1 but still doesn't tell whether |x| < 1 .

I + II : 0 <x> 2

If x is not equal to 0, is |x| less than 1?

x > x/|x|
|x| > x

Statement I :

x = -2
-2 > -2/2 = -2 > -1 not true therefore x > 1

Your method is correct, but your conclusion is wrong. If you know for sure that |x| > 1 then the data is SUFFICIENT.

Statement II :
(2) |x| > x states that x <0> -1 but still doesn't tell whether |x| < 1 .
I + II : 0 <x> 2

Statement 2 is insufficient like you proved. Hence the answer is A.
