Answer given behind book is option (B)

Book answer is wrong. If Vz = 4.9V the zener would be burned to a crisp! (internal R = 0).

These attachments are irrelevant to your zener problem.

Both methods of analysis are valid, providing you draw the logical conclusion. Determining the Thévenin equivalent is fine, but you don't have to.

Answer (a) is correct. The zener voltage here must be 4 volts if it is conducting.
