Going by the answer options, Only x = 1.5(Option D) is contained in the scope of x

When x=1.5, |x| = 1.5 > 1 and |x-3| = |1.5 - 3| = |-1.5| > 1

by simplifying modulus, x has following solutions:

X >1
X< -1
X<2
X>4

choice D satisfies 2nd and 3rd solution, so D.
try number line and plot if solutions make it messy.

==> |x|>1 becomes x<-1 or 1<x, and for |x-3|>1, you get x-3<-1 or 1<x-3 --> x<2 or 4<x. Then, what satisfies both becomes 1<x<2 or 4<x.

The answer is D.
Answer: D

When |x|>1 and |x-3|>1, which of the following is contained in the scope of x?

A. -0.5
B. 0
C. 0.5
D. 1.5
E. 2.5

Contained in the scope of x in simple terms means ' Which of the choices fit in the range of x'.

Now |x|>1 means x<-1 and x>1
|x-3|>1 means x-3>1..x>4 or 3-x>1 or x<2..

Common range is x<-1, 1<x<2 and x>4..
Only 1.5 falls in one of the range above 1<x<2

so D
