Mass of proton=$1.67\times 10^{-27}$
$u=\large\frac{6.625\times 10^{-34}}{1.67\times 10^{-27}\times 0.005\times 10^{-9}}$
$\Rightarrow 7.94\times 10^4m/s$
Accelerating potential is V,then velocity (u) acquired by the charge particle having charge Q and mass m.
$\;\;\;=\sqrt{\large\frac{2\times 1.602\times 10^{-19}\times V}{1.67\times 10^{-27}}}$
$7.94\times 10^4=\sqrt{\large\frac{2\times 1.602\times 10^{-19}\times V}{1.67\times 10^{-27}}}$
Hence (b) is the correct answer.
