$$([x])^2=(x+1)^2$$
$$[x^2]=x^2+1$$

$$([x])^2-[x^2]=x^2+2x+1-x^2-1=2x$$

Plugin in value of x
Let x=2
representing x bar with=Ẍ =x+1
$$(Ẍ)^2$$-{$$(x)^2$$}- this part the one in the curly bracket the value of x has to be first squared and then represented in Ẍ form($$(2)^2$$+1)
$$(2+1)^2$$-(4+1)
$$(3)^2$$-(5)=4
9-5=4
now put x=2 in the given answer choices only 2x=4 answer D.
