We know $cosec^{-1}\big(\large\frac{5}{3}\big)$$=tan^{-1}\large\frac{3}{4}$
$\Rightarrow \cot(\tan^{-1}\large\frac{3}{4}$$+\tan^{-1}\large\frac{2}{3})$
$\Rightarrow \cot\tan^{-1}\bigg[\large\frac{\Large\frac{3}{4}+\frac{2}{3}}{1-\Large\frac{1}{2}}\bigg]$
$\Rightarrow \cot\{\tan^{-1}\big(\large\frac{17}{6}\big)\}$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{1}{\tan}$$\times \tan^{-1}$$\big(\Large\frac{17}{6}\big)$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{1}{\tan}$$\times \tan$$\big(\Large\frac{6}{17}\big)$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{6}{17}$
Hence (a) is the correct answer.
