I need someone to explain me the concept of this problem. I am not fully confident. Gurpreet or Bunuel?


I'm not gurpreet or Bunuel, but still would like to try..!! :-D :-D

Question asks Is |k| = 2 >>> which means >>> Is k= 2,-2.
If the value of k is 2 or -2, the answer will "YES"

Statement 1:
k sqr = 4 means >>> k =2 or k=-2, In either case |k| = 2.

Statement 2:
k = |-2| = 2.
so k =2, so |k| = 2.

IMO its D.

Statement 1:
k sqr = 4 means >>> k =2 or k=-2, Also k can be Root 4

NOT SUFF

Statement 2:
k = |-2| = 2.
so k =2, so |k| = 2.

SUFF

IMO B

D for sure. The question is about |k|, root 4 =2. k=2 or -2 <=> k square=4 <=> |k|=2

ksquare=4 doesn't mean k can be root 4

Is |k| = 2?

(1) k^2 = 4 --> |k| = 2. Sufficient.

(2) k = |-2| --> k=2 --> |k| = 2. Sufficient.

Answer: D.
