Which of the following could be n if |2n – 3| < 1?

A. -4/3

B. -1

C. 4/3

D. 1

E. 0

Let’s solve the given inequality for when (2n - 3) is positive and then when (2n - 3) is negative.

When (2n - 3) is positive, we have:

2n - 3 < 1

2n < 4

n < 2

Now we can solve for when (2n - 3) is negative:

-(2n - 3) < 1

-2n + 3 < 1

-2n < -2

n > 1

Thus, 1 < n < 2, so n could equal 4/3.

Answer: C
