Hi Bunuel,

if we substitute p=0 then the answer must be 6. There can be no other answer right?

Not sure I understand what you mean...

p = 0, as well as any other value of p less than or equal 6 satisfies |p − 6| + p = 6.

thanks Bunuel..i have got it now... i wasn't seeing it the right way!!

You are wrong here Ashu,

There can be infinite many answers for this equation and the answer will fall in the range 0<p<6

It's simple property of Absolute Value: if $$|x| = y$$, then $$y>= 0$$;

Here the given equation can be rearranged as, $$|p-6| = 6-p$$
which implies, $$6-p >=0$$
or $$p<=6$$. Hence E.

I hope this clarifies some doubts.
