What is the value of \(|x| - |y|\) ?
(1) \(|x - y| = 0\)
(2) \(|\frac{x}{y}| = 1\)
Statement 1;
\(|x - y| = 0\)
x=y
or
x = y
substituting the value of x we get 0.
Statement 2:
\(|\frac{x}{y}| = 1\)
either ,
x/y = 1
x = y
or
-x/-y = 1
x = y
The same as 1.
Sufficient .
The best answer is D. Statement 2 : If x=-2 and y=2
then |x|/|y| => |-2|/|2| =>1 but in this case both x and y are having different signs, so how this is marked as sufficient. It is not necessary that both should be having same signs. Please explain what's wrong in my approach.
