Option (D) is correct.

 It is given that, total number of balls $=12$

Let the number of white balls $=x$

$\therefore$ Probability of getting a white ball = $\frac{x}{12}$

Now, $6$ white balls are added.  $\therefore$ Total number of balls $ =12 + 6 = 18$

Number of white balls $= x + 6$

$\therefore$ Probability of getting a white ball $= \frac{x + 6}{18}$

According to the question,

$\begin{align} \frac{x + 6}{18} &= 2 \times \frac{x}{12} \\ \implies   x+6 &= 3x \\ \implies \quad ~ 2x &= 6  \\ \implies \quad ~~~  x&=3 \end{align}$
