(2) |x – 3| < 4

(1) |x + 3| < 4
Case 1:
x+3 < 4
x<1

Case 1:
-x-3 < 4
-x < 7
x > -7

x may be greater or less than zero. Hence insufficient.

(2) |x – 3| < 4
Case 1:
x-3 < 4
x < 7

Case 2:
-x+3 < 4
-x < 1
x > -1

x may be greater or less than zero. Hence insufficient.

(1) and (2) together. may be less or more than zero. Hence insufficient.[/b]
