Its not difficult if you visualise it graphically.  
Search google for desmos graphing calculator and plot the graph for this function y= mod(x)/x.
You will see why left hand limit for thins function is -1 at 0.
 
Aletrnate solution 2
by definition mod(x) = x if x> 0 and
                                = -x if x
Hence for x
or limit x->0- = -1.
 
Alternate solution2
let x =0-h
as h->0 x->0-
hence the given limit can we evalauted as
limit h->0  mod (h)/(-h) = -1.
 
Its as simple as that

Posting again as the there is bug in website which does not properly dispay inequalities.

Alternate solution 1
by definition mod(x) = x if x is greater than 0
                                = -x if x is less than 0
Hence for x less than 0
mod(x)/x = -x/x = -1.
or limit x->0- = -1.
 
Alternate solution2
let x =0-h
as h->0 x->0-
hence the given limit can we evalauted as
limit h->0  mod (h)/(-h) = -1.
