Its B

2x^2 -y^2 = 2xy
2x^2 = 2xy + y^2

Add x^2 on both sides we get

2x^2 +x^2 = x^2 +y^2 +2xy
3x^2 = (x+y)^2

Given: $$2xy=2x^2-y^2$$.

$$(x+y)^2 =x^2+2xy+y^2$$ --> substitute $$2xy$$ --> $$(x+y)^2 =x^2+(2x^2 - y^2)+y^2=3x^2$$.

here we have to find the value of x^2 +y^2 +2xy in which 2xy
=2x^2 -y^2 (given ) hence ans is 3x^2.
