N*(N+1):
3*(3+1) = 12.
5*(5+1) = 30.

Agree with you, Thanks @Sayali Borse.

Simple explanation is;

3 * 4 = 12.
In the second proportion;
The First digit is 5 and the next digit is 6.
So, 5 * 6=30.
Now,
3:3 * 4 :: 5 : 5 : 6.
3:12::5::30.

The best solution to understand this is:
What comes after 3 is 4.
So 3*4 = 12.

What's come after 5 is 6.
5*6 = 30.

1*2+1 = 3,
3*3+3 = 12.

And;
4*1+1 = 5,
6*2+3 = 15.

Solve this.

3 and 5 are consecutive prime numbers so,

3 * 4 = 12 and 5 * 4 = 20 so 20 also can be the answer.
