13. Is p positive?

(1) I p – 4 I = 6
(2) 10 – p > 0

Should data set (1) be treated with the 2 scenarios I mentioned before?
a. p – 4 = 6
b. p – 4 = - 6

given these scenarios, p cam be either = 2 or = -2
therefore (1) is insufficient

with dataset (2), is it 10>p, therefore (2) is insufficient

when you combine both (1) and (2), it is still insufficient so the answer is (E)?

KUDOS

from (1) p=10 or p=-2 Insuff
from (2) p<10 Insuff

When combine them the result is p=-2
So p is negative
