    Anyway if you want to know how to get the answer, you need to first on the absolute value. The absolute value can only have values that are \(\ge0\). So, the range of \(|{x^2-3}|\) is \([0,\infty))\). Now when you subtract \(2\) from that, your new range (the range of the given function would be \([-2,\infty)\).
