The expression in your document can be re-written as Sqrt((x+3)^2) + Sqrt((y-1)^2)
Which employs => (x+3) + (y-1) we need to find value of this expression
When x = 3/4 and y = 2/5

3/4 + 3 + 2/5 - 1 = (15 + 60 + 8 - 20)/20 = 63/20

Answer B

(x+3) + (y-1)

but its not addition as per the question - its subtraction.
