If we modify the original condition, we can write |x|/x=1? as |x|=x?. Hence, the question becomes x>0?. Thus, the correct answer is A.

- Forget conventional ways of solving math questions. In DS, Variable approach is the easiest and quickest way to find the answer without actually solving the problem. Remember equal number of variables and independent equations ensures a solution.

Question : Is |x|/x equals to 1.

or Is |x| = x, which is possible when x > 0, so we need to find out whether x > 0 or not.

St 1: x > 0 (Sufficient)

St 2: x < 1

Take x = 0.5, then Is |0.5|/0.5 = 0.5/0.5 = 1

But if x = -1, then 1/-1 not equal to 1

Therefore, Not sufficient

(A)
