Solution


Given:
    • |x| < 4

To find:
    • Among the given options, which one represents the range of values possible for x

Approach and Working:
As per our conceptual understanding, |x| represents the distance of point x from the origin, in the number line.
    • Therefore, if we say |x| is less than 4, it means the point x is less than 4 units away from the origin.
    • As x can be both positive or negative, we can say x < 4 or x > - 4
    • Combining both, we can say – 4 < x < 4

Hence, the correct answer is option C.

Answer: C

from given description
x<4 for all values would stand true at -4 < x < 4
IMO C
