Solution

The correct option is B



Given, equation of plane is passing throug the point (-1, 3, 2)
A(x+1) + B(y-3) + C(z-2) = 0 ......(i)
Since plane (i) is perpendicular to each of the planes x + 2y + 3z = 5 and 3x + 3y + z = 0
So, A + 2B + 3C = 0 and 3A + 3B + C = 0
A29=B91=C36=KA=7K, B=8K, C=3K
Put the values of A, B and C in (i)
we get, 7x - 8y + 3z + 25 = 0, which is the required equation of the plane.
