In a Young's double slit experiment separation between two consecutive dark. fringes is $1.2 \;mm$, wave length $\lambda$ of light is $600 \;nm$ Distance between source and screen $D= 1 m $, the separation between slits is

$(a)\;1\;mm \\ (b)\;0.05\;mm \\ (c)\;0.5 \;mm \\ (d)0.1 \;mm $

Can you answer this question?

Fringe width $\beta= \large\frac{D \lambda}{d}$
'd' separation between slits
$ 1.2 \times 10^{-2} =\large\frac{1 \times 60 \times 10^{-10}}{d}$
$d= \large\frac{600 \times 10^{-10}}{1.2 \times 10^{-3}}$
$\quad= 0.5 mm$
Hence c is the correct answer.
