Equivalent mass of metal =16=$\large\frac{x}{n}$
Equivalent mass of oxygen is 8
When $x$=atomic mass of metal
$\qquad n$=valency of metal
Molecular formula of metal oxide $=M_xO_n$
$\large\frac{mass\;of\;metal\;oxide}{mass\;of\;metal}=\frac{2(16 n)+16(n)}{2(16n)}$
$\Rightarrow 1.5$
Hence (d) is the correct answer.
