For $H_{\alpha}$ line of Balmer series $n_1=2,n_2=3$
For $H_{\beta}$ line of Balmer series $n_1=2,n_2=4$
By equations (1) & (2)
$\lambda_{\beta}=\lambda_{\alpha}\times \big[\large\frac{80}{108}\big]$
$\Rightarrow 6500\times \large\frac{80}{108}$
$\Rightarrow 4814.8A^{\large\circ}$
Hence (a) is the correct answer.
