    Answer:  (2) 6 

    Solution:-
    According to the question,
    (X – 3) (2 X + 1) /(2 X + 1) (X + 4) = 3/10
    (X – 3)/(X + 4) = 3/10
    10 X – 30 = 3 X + 12
    10 X – 3 X = 12 + 30
    7 X = 42
    X = 42/7
    X = 6

    Thus, the value of X is 6.

    Hence, the  correct answer is option (2) 6.
