I took the values for \(\sqrt{{2}}\), \(\sqrt{{80}}\), and solved each option
~(x) = |x - x(rounded)|

1) \(\sqrt{{2}}\) = 1.414
~(x) = |x - x(rounded)| =| 1.414 - 1 | = 0.414

2) (pi) = 3.14
~(x) = |x - x(rounded)| =| 3.14 - 3 | = 0.140

3) \(\frac{(−19}{7)}\) = - 2.714
~(x) = |x - x(rounded)| =| -2.714 + 3 | = 0.286

4) \(\sqrt{{80}}\) = 6.928
~(x) = |x - x(rounded)| =| 6.928 - 7 | = 0.072

5) (−6.1)
~(x) = |x - x(rounded)| =| -6.1 + 6 | = 0.100

Correct Answer A.
