A={x| x^2>9} - This set contains all positive numbers greater than x=3
B={x| 1<x<16} - This set contains all positive number from x=1.1 to x=15.9
C={x| x^2<25} - This set contains all positive numbers from x=-4.9 to x=4.9

If we have been asked to find the intersection of the three sets,
we need to find the common numbers which is 3<|x|<5(Option B)

P.S if x is an integer, then Option E is the correct answer.

A={x| x^2>9} = {x| |x|^2>9} = {x| |x|>3}.
B={x| 1<x^2<16}={x| 1<|x|^2<16}={x| 1<|x|<4},
C={x| x^2<25}={x| |x|^2<25}={x| |x|<5}.

A∩B∩C = { x | 3 < |x| < 4 }.

Therefore, the answer is E.

Please fix original post above. B should say 1<x^2<16, according to explanation above.
