i can't write the question here because it is number line.


There is a typo in your book. The arrow pointing to "E" should point to the value less than 2.

A. A
B. B
C. C
D. D
E. E

So you can see that A is exactly -2 so |A|=|-2|=2 and E is less than 2, so |E|<2.

Answer: A.

P.S. You can attach image files directly to the topic.

A is right. Because the question tells for absolute value. And A has the largest absolute value.
