    \[\Large \frac{\frac{x^2+2x+1}{x-2}}{\frac{x^2-1}{x^2-4}}\] is the same as \[\Large \frac{x^2+2x+1}{x-2} \times \frac{x^2-4}{x^2-1}\]

    and you can combine the fractions to get \[\Large \frac{(x^2+2x+1)(x^2-4)}{(x-2)(x^2-1)}\]

    then factor everything to get \[\Large \frac{(x+1)(x+1)(x-2)(x+2)}{(x-2)(x-1)(x+1)}\]

    yes, cancelling the common factors leads to \[\Large \frac{(x+1)(x+2)}{x-1}\] which is A
