I got C.

stmnt1 - clearly nsf, because x could be many values, either positive, or negative, and the expression |x|<1 could be true or false.

stmnt 2 - |x|>x => x<0
nsf

Let's combine.
because x<0 and x/|x| < x, it means that x is in the following range: -1<x<0.
Pick any number inside the -1<x<0 range, and the statement |x|<1 will always be true.
Therefore, C.
