The headset that I have with me has two separate jacks - one for mic and other for audio. But Lenovo X240 wouldn't support it as it has only a single port. Can you suggest what splitter/adapter I can use to connect my headset with the laptop. My headset has a 3.5 mm jack for audio and mic.

For the headset with separate jacks for mic and phones use 2 x 3.5mm 3 pole jack sockets to 1 x 3.5mm 4 pole jack plug adapter or a short cable. Take a note jack plug must match OMTP specification. Another type is CTIA/AHJ.
Not every supplier specifies a jack plug type. So, read the comments under the device lot, at least. If some user mentions compatibility with Apple devices, it's not your choice as Apple supports CTIA specification only.
As an example of Lenovo devices compatible adapter (not an advertising), read the comments:
