Best answer

\(K_1=K_2 \) --{given}
\(\tfrac{p_1^2}{2m_1}=\tfrac{p_2^2}{2m_2}\) 
\((\tfrac{p_1}{p_2})^2=\tfrac{m_1}{m_2}\)
\((\tfrac{p_1}{p_2})=\sqrt{\tfrac{m_1}{m_2}}\) 
\(\sqrt{m_1}:\sqrt{m_2}\)
given m1=4g m2=16g
\(\sqrt{4}:\sqrt{16}\)
\(\sqrt{1}:\sqrt{4}\) ⇒1:2n:2 = 1:2
therefore n=1

The answer is option 2) 1/2 , and value of n=1
