  1. | t - 24 | ≤ 30

    There are two cases here: positive and negative:

    case I: positive
    t - 24 ≤ 30
    t ≤ 30 + 24
    t ≤ 54

    case II: negative
    -(t - 24) ≤ 30
    -t + 24 ≤ 30
    24 - 30 ≤ t
    -6 ≤ t

    We get the intersection of these solution:
    -6 ≤ t ≤ 54

    Now from the choices, which of them is not included in this set?
