Question can be rewritten as

-1<x-1<1
Is 0<x<2 ?

1) taking square root on both sides we get x <= 2 - Insuff
2) x could be anyting but 1

Is |x-1|<1?

a) (x-1)^2 <= 1

b) x^2-1>0

Simplifying the Q we will get,
0<x<2

a) this can also be simplified as 0<x<=2 so INSUFF

b) so X>1 and x<-1 INSUFF

combining also INSUFF, since we have x<=2
