Here,
It will be option D, since The square root of a number squared is equal to the absolute value of that number

i.e. $$\sqrt{S^2} = |S|$$

option (A) does not have to be true, if S could be negative while T is positive.

option (B) does not have to be true. because if we consider fraction

Option (C) does not have to be true because S and T could have opposite signs.

OPtion (E) does not have to be true because S and T could have the same sign.

(D) $$|S| > |T|$$

(E) $$ST < 0$$

Taking the square root of both sides, we have:

|S| > |T|

Note: If you are wondering why B is not true, take S = 2/5 and T = 1/5.
