We have an infinite sequence $$ a_1, a_2 , a_3 \cdots $$ And it is given that $$ |a_1| \lt |a_2 -a_1| \lt |a_3 -a_2| \lt |a_4 - a_3| \cdots \\ a_1 \neq 0 $$ (that is the difference between the subsequent terms are increasing and first term cannot be zero)
Can we conclude that the absolute values of subsequent terms are increasing? That is can we conclude $$ |a_1| \lt |a_2| \lt |a_3| \lt |a_4| \cdots $$ Playing around with the inequalities given in the question can give us the information that the alternate terms are increasing (in absolute/numerical value, leaving $a_1$ aside, that is, not comparing $a_1$ with any terms but just caring that it is not zero) but not the consecutive terms. So, I think we cannot conclude that the consecutive terms are numerically increasing.
An explanatory answer is sought.
