Your Answer
D

Solution

The correct option is C 1
5x+4       ....(1)
3x+2     ....(2)
Equating expressions (1) and (2), we get,
5x+4=3x+2
5x3x=24
2x=2
x=1
Consider equation (1) and (2), put x=1,
5x+4=5(1)+4=1....(3)
3x+2=3(1)+2=1....(4)
Equation (3) and (4) are equal.
Hence, for x = -1 the expressions 5x + 4 and 3x + 2 becomes equal.
