Thanks,

lets

if x>1

x+1=2x-2
3=x OK works

if 0<x<1
x+1=-2(x-1)
x+1=-2x+2
3x=1 x=1/3 works..

if x<0

-(x+1)=-2(x-1)
-x-1=-2x+1
x=0 ..not possible since x<0

so 1) is insuff
look at 2) again insuff

but 1+2) |x-3|>0 means x is not equal to 3..therefore x=1/3 sufficient C

this i would rate as 450 level question..
