Which of the following inequalities represents the entire solution set for x if |x| > x?

A. x ≥ 0
B. x > 0
C. x ≤ 0
D. x < 0
E. x < −1


\(|x|<x\), is only possible when \(x<0\)

Option \(D\)

------------------------------------

Algebraically, we can have two cases -

Case 1: if \(x≥0\), then \(|x|=x\),

so equation will become \(x>x\), or \(0>0\) which is not possible. Hence discard Case 1.

Case 2: if \(x<0\), then \(|x|=-x\)

so equation will become \(-x>x\), or \(0>2x=>x<0\) which is True in this case.

Answer is D

The reason why it can't be C is that |x| means values that are nonnegative, so positive numbers and 0 are valid. |0|>0 is not true hence not correct.
