The correct option is A

2


|a1|+b1=ab=a+1+(b+1)

By analyzing (a - 1) & (b - 1) needs to be of different sign so as cancel off the 1 & be be equal |a| + |b|

11 aly, for (a + 1) & (b + 1) too,they need to be of different sign.

Therefore, a & b will be of different signs.

So, let a > 0 & b < 0.

|a1|+b1=ab=a+1+|b+1|

Equating 1st two.

|a1|+b1=ab

For this to be true, a1,0a1

Equality last two

ab=a+1+|b+1|

For this to be true, b+10b1

(a,b)R(1,1)

|ab|mn=|1(1)|=2
