Correct option is (d) 2\sqrt{x^5+9}

For explanation I would say: Let x^5+9=t

Differentiating w.r.t x, we get

5x^4 dx=dt

\int \frac{5x^4}{\sqrt{x^5+9}} dx=\int \frac{dt}{\sqrt{t}}

=\frac{t^{-\frac{1}{2}+1}}{-\frac{1}{2}+1}=2\sqrt{t}

Replacing t with x^5+9, we get

\int \frac{5x^4}{\sqrt{x^5+9}} dx=2\sqrt{x^5+9}.
