Answer: (4) 20

Explanation:-
Let the number be X.

According to the question,
X x 3/4 = X x 1/6 + 7
3 X/4 = (X + 42)/6
By cross multiplication,
6 x 3 X = 4 X + 42 x 4
18 X – 4 X = 168
14 X = 168
X = 12

5/3 of 12 = 12 x 5 /3
= 4 x 5
= 20

Then, the 5/3 of the number is 20.

Hence, the answer is (4) 20.
