Hi..
We are looking for is u>W...

Let's see the statements..
1) u=|W|
U is POSITIVE..
But if W is positive, ans is YES
If W is NEGATIVE, ans is NO
Insufficient

2) W=|u|
This tells us W is positive..
If u is positive, ans is NO
If u is NEGATIVE, ans is Again NO
Sufficient

B

Good question with a usual trap.
(2) w=|u| which means u is either equal to w or, if it is negative, it is smaller than u. So, (2) is sufficient to answer the question.

Specifically for statement 2, where we are given w=|u|
There are two cases.
Case 1: w = -u or u is negative and w positive
Here, u>w is false
Case 2: w = u, so u and w are both positive
Here u>w is false, because they are equal.

Hence, this statement alone is sufficient. Hope that helps

==> For con 2), w=|u|≥u for all u is established, so you get w≥ur, which is always no and sufficient.

Therefore, the answer is B.
Answer: B
