Answer:

The domain is #x\in RR# (all real numbers).
The range is #y<=1#.

Explanation:

The domain is #x\in RR# (all real numbers) since there are no numbers that cause any problems when substituted.

The range of #y=|x|# is #y>=0# so we have to transform that. First we reflect over the #x#-axis because of the negative as a coefficient. That would make the range #y<=0#. Next we shift the entire graph up 1 unit because of the #+1#. That causes the range to change to #y<=1#.
