    Answer: (b) 8/44-5 + 25 = 203

    Solution:-
    ‘+’ denotes subtraction,
    ‘/’ denotes addition,
    ‘-‘ 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.
