|r|*s=r^2

so, s=-r, or s=+r

so, if s=-r, the sr is <0,
and r not equal to s,
but s will be either =r, or >-r.

so swill be always >=r
so ans C

can someome explain this pls...
|r| = always positive
|r|* s = r^2
lets assume s = (-2)^2 and r = - 4

is this case
1)rs = -16 False
2) r=s False
3) s ≥ r True

So option c

Hi...
\(|r|*s=r^2\)..
Now |r| and r^2 are always positive..
So positive*s=positive
Here s has to be positive
So two points
1) s is positive and r can be anything
2) numeric value of s and r is equal that is |r|=|s|

If r is negative, s>r and if r is positive, s=r
Thus s can never be <r
