Answer: (b) 8/44-5 + 25 = 203

Solution:-
‘+’ denotes subtraction,
‘-‘ denotes multiplication,
‘x’ denotes division.

Taken option (a),
56 + 12 x 34 – 12 = 102
Put the value of given signs ‘+’ denotes subtraction,    ‘/’ denotes addition,  ‘-‘ denotes multiplication,  ‘x’ denotes division.
Then,  56 – 12 /34 x 12 = 102
56 – 12 /34 x 12 does not equal 102.
So, this option is not correct.

Taken option (b),
8/44-5 + 25 = 203
Put the value of given signs ‘+’ denotes subtraction,    ‘/’ denotes addition,  ‘-‘ denotes multiplication,  ‘x’ denotes division.
Then, 8 + 44 x 5 – 25
= 8 + 220 – 25
= 228 – 25
= 203

This option is correct.

Hence, the correct answer is option (b) 8/44-5 + 25 = 203.
