D. The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.
kudo for the right
solution and
explanationHere we have to consider negative and positive value of |2y -5|.
Considering (2y - 5) to be negative
or -(2y - 5) < 1
or 2y - 5 > -1 (equality changes as the sign changes)
or 2y > 4 (adding 5 on both side)
or y > 2
Now consider positive
|2y -5|<1
or 2y - 5 < 1
or 2y < 6 (adding 5 on both side)
or y <3
Therefore the value of y is = 2 < y < 3
Hence statement A.
