In the arrangement as shown a mass m is released from rest with spring unstreched.What is the speed of block at equillibrium position

$a)\; v=\sqrt {\large\frac{gm}{k}}\\ b)\;v=g \sqrt {\large\frac{m}{R}} \\ c)\;v=\sqrt {\large\frac{m}{Rg}}\\ d)\;v=\sqrt {\large\frac{mk}{g}}$
Can you answer this question?

At equillibrium position when net forcea acting on the block is zero.
Let v be speed of block in this position.
Applying conservation of mechanical energy
$v=\sqrt {2gx_0-\large\frac{k}{m} \normalsize x_0^2}$
Substituting $x_0=\large\frac{mg}{k}$
We get $v=g \sqrt {\large\frac{m}{k}}$
Hence b is the correct answer.
