4xy(1/2y + 3/2x)

= 4xy( (y+3x)/2 )

= 2xy(y+3x)

= 2xy^2 + 6x^2y

none of the choices

I suspect a typo

did you mean

4xy(1/(2y) + 3/(2x) ) ?

then

= 4xy( (x + 3)/(2xy) )

= 2(x + 3y)

= 2x + 6y

looks like you did have a typo.

1/(2y) + 3/(2x) = x/(2xy) + 3y/(2xy) = (x+3y)/(2xy)

and now it's easy, eh?
