    Answer: (2) -1/12

    Explanation:-
    (3x – 2)/3 + (2x + 3)/2  = x + 7/6
    {2(3x – 2) + 3(2x + 3)}/6 = (6x + 7)/6
    6x – 4 + 6x + 9 = 6x + 7
    12x + 5 = 6x + 7
    12x – 6x = 7 – 5
    6x = 2
    x = 2/6
    x = 1/3
    Then, the value of (5x – 2)/4
    Put the value of x = 1/3
    Then, (5 x 1/3 – 2)/4
    = (5 – 6)/12
    = -1/12

    Hence, the answer is (2) -1/12.
