  • If the equation is of the form $\large\frac{dy}{dx}$$ + py= Q$, then the integrating factor is $e^{\large\int pdx}$
The equation can be rewritten as $\large\frac{dy}{dx }-\frac{ y}{x} =$$ 2x^2$
Here $p = \large\frac{-1}{x}$ and $Q = 2x^2$
Hence the integral Factor is $e^{\int (\large\frac{-1}{x})}dx = e^{\large-\log x} = e^{\large \log(1/x)} = 1/x$
Hence C is the correct answer.
