    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.
