- Same Quantity can be added (a subtracted ) to (from ) both sides of the inequality with out changing the sign of the in equality.
- Same positive quantities can be multiplied or divided to both side of the in equality with out changing the sign of the inequality.
- If same negative quantity is multiplied or divided to both sides of the inequality is reversed i.e $ '>'$ sign changes to $'<' $ and $'<'$ changes $'>'$ .

The given inequality is $\large\frac{x}{4} < \frac{(5x-2)}{3} - \frac{(7x-3)}{5}$

=> $ \large\frac{x}{4} < \frac{5(5x-2)-3(7x-3)}{15}$

=> $ \large\frac{x}{4} < \frac{(25x-10-2)x+9}{15}$

=> $ \large\frac{x}{4} < \frac{4x-1}{15}$

Multiplying by a positive number 60 on both sides

=> $15 x < 4(4x-1)$

=> $15 x < 16 x -4$

=> $4 < x $

Step 2:

Thus all real numbers which are greater than 4 are solutions of the given inequality.

The solution set is $(4, \infty)$

Hence C is the correct answer.
