Re: If |x/4| > 1 which of the following must be true? [#permalink]
since the inequality involves modulus we should account for both +ve and -ve value

For$$+$$ve value

$$x/4 > 1$$
therefore, $$x>4$$

For $$-$$ve value

$$x/4 < -1$$ (Since this is a inequality multiplying by $$-$$ve number flips the inequality symbol)
$$x < -4$$
The correct option should satisfy both the situation and only choice D does that when x is not equal to $$4$$
