Ncorrect, as a can be a negative number with a smaller magnitude, in which case 2 does not work out. The correct answer is PART 4, as a+b will always be negative, while |a+b| is always positive.

Disagree with the idea that a must be positive. For example, a can be -2, b can be -10, and the rules from the question still apply.
