x > \(\frac{x}{|x|}\)
If x>0 then x > \(\frac{x}{|x|}\) = x > \(\frac{x}{x}\) or x>1.
Satisfies.

If x<0 then x > \(\frac{x}{|x|}\) = x > \(\frac{x}{-x}\) or x>-1. Since no integer exists between -1 and 0. This is invalid.

Hence x>1.

A is the answer.

x/|x| = 1 when x>0
= -1 when x<0
So x>x/|x| has a solution set of -1<x<0 and x>1. But since here we need only integer solutions X>1 is the correct answer as no integer lies between -1 and 0

X > X / |X| , Which of the following gives solution set of integer X?.
Given X > X / |X| ==> for this to be true X should always be greater than 1 , Consider X = 2
2 > 2 /2 { |2| = 2} ==> True
when X = -2 , -2 > -2/2 ==> -2> -1 ==> which is False
A. X > 1 ===> OA
B. X > -1
C. |X| < 1
D. |X| = 1
E.|X|^2 > 1
