No, the modulus function can never give a negative value.

 

Modulus function is basically,

  • x ,   for x≥0
  • -x ,  for x<0

which means if i put x= -5 ... then according to the above definations

the value of the function would be

-x

-(-5)

=5

 

Hence, a modulus can never return a negative value.
