out of the all 5 points the greatest possible absolute value will be for those point which is most far away from 0
as we can see clearly that point A is most farther so it is the correct answer

We must remember the absolute value measures the distance from zero. Thus, we are looking for the point on the number line that is farthest away from zero. We see that that point is point A.

Answer: A
