Hello Student,
Please find answer to your question

e2x– (a-2)ex+ a < 0
t = ex
t2– (a – 2)t + a < 0
So the equation does not real roots.
(a – 2)2< 4a
a2+ 4 – 4a < 4a
a2– 8a + 4 < 0
a = \frac{8\pm \sqrt{48}}{2}
a = \frac{8\pm 4\sqrt{3}}{2}
a = 4\pm 2\sqrt{3}
\Rightarrow a\in (4-2\sqrt{3}, 4 + 2\sqrt{3})
So 6 is the correct option.
