Mol.weight of $CH_4=16$
$25g\;CH_4=\large\frac{6.023\times 10^{23}\times 25}{16}$molecules
$\Rightarrow 9.41\times 10^{23}$ molecules
$25g\;CH_4=\large\frac{6.023\times 10^{23}\times 25}{16}$atoms of C
$\Rightarrow 9.41\times 10^{23}$ atoms of C
$16gCH_4=N$atoms of H
$25gCH_4=\large\frac{4\times 25\times 6.023\times 10^{23}}{16}$atoms of H
$\Rightarrow 3.764\times 10^{24}$atoms of H
Hence (a) is the correct answer.
