m]\sqrt{96} < x \sqrt{6}........4\sqrt{6}<x\sqrt{6}..........x>4[/m] and
$$\frac{x}{\sqrt{6}} < \sqrt{6}.......x<6$$.
So 4<x<6...
Since x is an integer, x must be 5..

(E) 6

$$\sqrt{96} < x \sqrt{6}$$

Dividing by $$\sqrt{6}$$ on both sides.

Therefore,

x > $$\sqrt{16}$$

x > 4 ---------- (1)

Also,

$$\frac{x}{\sqrt{6}} < \sqrt{6}$$

Multiplying both sides with $$\sqrt{6}$$

Therefore,

x < 6 ------------- (2)

From (1) and (2), we get

4 < x < 6

As x is an integer, therefore,

x = 5 ---------- Option (D)

(D) 5

(E) 6

$$\sqrt{96}$$ =$$\sqrt{16*6}$$ =4$$\sqrt{6}$$

So , x > 4 .

again ,

$$\frac{x}{\sqrt{6}} < \sqrt{6}$$

x< $$\sqrt{6*6}$$

x < 6.

4<x<6

So, x is 5.

The best answer is D.
