I got this question right. But didn't really understand why Answer D cannot be right either. Anyone care to explain? Thanks.

1)x^4 >= 1 means x <= -1 or x >= 1
2)x^3 <= 27 means x <= 3
3)x2 >=16 means x>= -4 0r x<= 4
4)2<= |x| < = 5
-2=<x>=-5
2=<x>=5
5) x > = -2/3 and x<= 2/3 so single line segement of finite length

because D is 2 lines of finite lengths.

--(-5)=====(-2)---0----(2)=====(5)----


E is 1 line of finite length.

----(-2/3)===0===(2/3)-----
