$$2x-3b=0$$ --> $$b=\frac{2x}{3}<2$$ --> $$x<3$$.

$$Given,$$ $$..........$$ $$b < 2$$ $$\Rightarrow$$ $$b = LT2$$ $$...........$$

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

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

$$\Rightarrow$$ $$x = LT 3$$

$$\Rightarrow$$ $$x < 3$$ $$Hence,$$ $$Answer choice .. D$$

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

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.)

Here it is:
b<2
2x-3b=0
2x=3b
2x/3=b
Using both information we have:
2x/3<2
2x<6
x<3
