Hint: We have to find the absolute value of the given number only. Absolute value of a number is always the same number without any sign (that it is always positive). Even if the number is negative and asked for absolute value then the minus sign is removed and the positive answer is written.

Complete step-by-step answer:
Given the number is 3.
Now the absolute value of 3 is 3 because there is no negative sign behind the number which should be removed by taking the absolute value.
Thus , \[\left| 3 \right| = 3\]
This absolute value of 3 is only 3 that is positive 3.
And if the number is -3 and is asked for the absolute value then we will just remove the minus sign and can write the absolute value as 3.
So, the correct answer is “3”.

Note: Absolute value of a number or also known as modulus is the non-negative value of that number.
This is sign of modulus \[ \to \left| {} \right|\]. Absolute value is never negative. Say the absolute value of 5 and -5 both are the same that is 5. Also note that signs between modulus will remain the same because they are operational rather than only signs of the number or modulus of that number.
