    Option (B) 4 = 2x - 3

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let distance travel by Marcus be "x" miles

    Then, according to question

    Distanced travelled by Jenney will be

    twice of "x" minus 3.

    Distance travelled by Jenny = 2x - 3.

    Also, it is given that Jenny has travelled 4 miles.

    then, 4 = 2x - 3. So, here option (B) is the correct option.
