    Answer : (1) 3 : 1
    Explanation:-
    x/y = 3/4
    Then, x = 3 and y = 4
    Put the value of x and y in the given equation,
    Then,2x + 3y and 3x – 2 y
    =  2 x 3 + 3 x 4 and 4 x 3 – 2 x 3
    = 6 + 12 and 12 – 6
    = 18 and 6
    Then, the ratio of (2x + 3y) and (3y – 2x) = 18/6
    = 3/1
    = 3 :1
    Hence, the answer is (1) 3 : 1.
