And is necessary , and or is sufficient condition.
 
     Like if:
        
          l X l   < 7  
 
     - 7 < X < 7                   -7---------+7                   
 
    
 Solution of X in addition to be less than +7 has to be greater than -7 at the same time.(and)
    However:
 
      l X l > 7
 
        X > 7 or X < -7             --------- -7           +7 -----------  
 
        Here either X =-8   or  X = +8 are sufficient to be the solution.
