Maximum path difference $\Delta P_{max}=d= 1mm$
=> highest order maxima,
$n_{max} =\bigg[\large\frac{d}{\lambda} \bigg]$$=2$
and highest order minima $n_{min}= \bigg[ \large\frac{d}{\lambda} +\frac{1}{2}\bigg]$
$\qquad= 2$
Total number of maxima $=2 n _{max} +1=5$
Total number of minima $=2n _{min}=4$
Hence the correct answer is b
