I have two questions,

why do you set K = max of all the terms of the sequence plus the 1 + |A| term? Why do you need the absolute value of all the terms? i.e. why |a_1| instead of |a_1|?

Because ##|x_n|< L+1## only holds for ##n > N##. If some of the first ##N## terms are larger than all the rest, use the biggest one of them for the bound.
