    B is correct ^^ You must take the whole value of a number (the number inside the l l is always positive.

    |-2|>|1| is right because |#| means no matter what the number is going to be positive so |-2| really means 2, when you work out the absolute value of -2 and 1 and place it back in the equation its going to be 2>1 adn 2 is greater then 1
