Answer : (b) $\;1.17\times10^{45}$
Explanation :
Total energy emitted / second = power (watts)
$\large\frac{\eta}{sec}=\large\frac{Power\;of\;sun\;(W)}{\large\frac{\varepsilon}{photon}}=\large\frac{I\times(4 n R^{2})\times(6000\times10^{-10})}{6.6\times10^{-34}\times3\times10^{8}} \quad \; $ (R average radius of earth's orbit)
