So, because it doesen't matter if it is negative or positive, hence 2 is the right solution. (A)

Sorry to bump a old thread, but I just completed this problem in the book and considered it relatively easy compared to the others. I guessed it to be a 450500 level question. Instead it is a 600 level question. Is this really the case?
I tried the diagnostic test at the beginning of the book and could hardly get any questions right and they were 650 level based on information in this forum.
What can I expect on the GMAT? Questions like in the diagnostic section or like those in the Practice Questions to give me a minimum score of 550?
Thanks!

(A) A (B) B (C) C (D) D (E) E Before attacking this question, we want to review what “absolute value” means. The absolute value of a number measures or is the distance that number is from zero on the number line. Let’s say we are comparing the absolute values of 100 and 90; we’d say that 100 has THE GREATER ABSOLUTE VALUE. It has the greater absolute value because 100 = 100 and 90 = 90. Notice that 100 is farther away from zero than 90 is. In regard to this question, we can see that A (notice that A = 2) is farther from zero than any other answer choice. If we were to estimate E, we could say it’s about 1.8. That is slightly closer to zero than A is, because the distance of A from 0 is 2 = 2. Answer A.
