$x^2$ is differentiable and $x-1$ is continuous and differentiable in the given domain.. make the graph of both and check.. 

Sorry.. i have went terribly wrong, Thnaks a TON for making it right.. :)

Actually $|x|$=maximum(x,-x) , you can verify this here

and we know that $|x|$  is not differentiable at x=0 which is in interval [-1,1] .

Rest of the functions are continuous and differentiable everywhere. 

so option D.
