But sir my answer does no matches any option,and solution to this problem was given by making thevenin equivalent of the circuit across zener diode !

It doesn't match option A?

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).

I have attached the solution given behind the book, please tell me if the solution is valid and can i use it in other problems similar to this ?

These attachments are irrelevant to your zener problem.
