(A) 0
(B) 1
(C) 2
(D) 3
(E) 4


If (d) > absolute value of l(a+b+c)l where d is positive, then x=1.

Answer B.

The question asks for the minimum positive number so that the sum can be positive.
Out of the given options, the minimum positive number is 1.
Hence answer is B.

The question ask about minimum positive numbers
take example that one number is 100 and other three number is -1 so minimum number should be 1
So answer should be B
