I want to tell the reader that:

  • Chapter 2 explains the X theory.

  • Chapter 3 explains the X theory.

  • Chapter 4 explains the X theory.

  • Chapter 5 explains the X theory.

  • Chapter 6 explains the X theory.

How should I write a proper sentence to convey the message mentioned above?

Chapter 2 until Chapter 6 explain the X theory.

or

Chapter 2 to Chapter 6 explain the X theory.

or does anybody have better idea?

Thank you

I don't agree with either of the two suggestions. More succinct is

Chapters 2 to 6 explain the X theory.

There is no need to repeat the word chapter.

Try:

Chapters 2 through 6 explain the X theory.

Meaning: The (chapters from 2 to 6) explain the X theory.

Note: "Chapters 2 through 6" is a plural subject, like "they".
