300%= $$\frac{400}{100}$$. So 300% of x = 4x.

$$\frac{400}{100}$$x * $$\frac{3}{4}$$ = $$\frac{1200}{400}$$x = 3x

Alternate method : By Plugging in some number

Let X = 100 , So, 300% of 100 = 300

Now, 25% less than 300% of x = 75% of 300 => 225 , Thus, answer must be (D)

Note :

300 % = 300 / 100. but you wrote 400 / 100. Thus you got the wrong answer. Rest of the things are fine.
