We know that $|x| = x$ when $x>= 0$ and $|x| = -x$ when $x<0$.
So, region covered by the graph $|x| + |y| <= 1$ is bounded by the lines $(x+y =1)$ , $(-x +y =1)$ , $(x - y =1)$ , $(-x -y =1)$ [As shown in Fig $A$ below]
So, the region covered will be the square $[ (0,1) , (1,0) , (0,-1) , (-1,0) ]$ [ As shown in Fig $A$]
The side length of the above square is $√2.$
Now, in the $3D$ version of the above scenario the space will be covered by the lines $(x+z = 1)$ , $( -x +z = 1)$ , $( -y +z =1)$ ,
$( y +z = 1)$, $( -y-z =1)$, $( -y +z = 1)$ , $(x -z =1)$ , $(-x -z = 1)$. [ As shown in the figure $B$]
This will create two pyramids $[ (0,0,1) , (0,1,0) , (1,0,0) , (0,-1,0) , (-1,0,0) ]$ and $[ (0,0,-1) , (0,1,0) , (1,0,0) , (0,-1,0) , (-1,0,0) ]$
[ As shown in the above figure $B$ ]
Note that the base of the above two pyramids are same and it is the square formed in the $2D$ version.
Now, we know that the volume of the pyramid is $1/3$ ( area of the base) (height)
Here the area of the base $\left ( \sqrt{2} \right )^{2}$ $=$ $2$ square units. and the height = $1$ unit.
Thus the volume of the pyramids formed $=$ $2$ * ( $1/3$ * $2$ * $1$ ) cubic units = $4/3$ cubic units
which matches ith option $D$.
Hence, $D$ will be the correct answer.
