$U_{AV} = \sqrt{(\large\frac{8RT}{\pi m})}$
$U_{AV} = 0.3m/s$ at 300K
$\therefore U_1 = 0.3 = \sqrt{(\large\frac{8R\times300}{\pi m})}$-------(1)
At T = 273+927 = 1200K
$\therefore U_2 = \sqrt{(\large\frac{8R\times1200}{\pi m})}$-------(2)
$\therefore \large\frac{U_2}{0.3} = \sqrt{(\large\frac{1200}{300})}$
$\Rightarrow U_2 = 0.6m/s$
Hence answer is (b)
