\(Given,\) \(..........\) \(b < 2\) \(\Rightarrow\) \(b = LT2\) \(...........\)

\(&\) \(2x - 3b = 0\)\(.....\) \(Therefore\) \(..........\)\(2x - 3 ( LT2 ) = 0\)

\(Therefore,\) \(2x - LT6 = 0\) \(\Rightarrow\) \(2x = LT6\) \(\Rightarrow\) \(x=\frac{LT6}{2}\)

\(\Rightarrow\) \(x = LT 3\)

\(\Rightarrow\) \(x < 3\) \(Hence,\) \(Answer choice .. D\)

2x - 3b = 0
Therefore, 2x = 3b
As, b<2
2x < 3(2)
i.e x < 3

Answer : D

As an alternative method, use optimization:

A. if x > -3, then x(100). If x(100) then b is not less than 2. Not true.
C. if x = 3, then x(3). If x(3), then b is 2. Not true.
E. if x > 3, then x(100). If x(100) then b is not less than 2. Not true.

Thus, both x<2 and x<3 are left.

D. If x<3, then x(2.5). If x(2.5), still b<2. Must be true.
(B. if x<2, then 2.5 missing from solution set. Thus, x<2 is not true.)
