Momentum ,$mu=\large\frac{h}{\lambda}$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{6.625\times 10^{-34}}{5200\times 10^{-10}}$$Kgm/s$------(i)
Momentum of electron $=mu=9.108\times 10^{-31}\times u$------(ii)
Since both are same,therefore by (i) & (ii)
$9.108\times 10^{-31}\times u=\large\frac{6.625\times 10^{-34}}{5200\times 10^{-10}}$
Hence (a) is the correct answer.
