Answer : (d) $\;2.11\times10^{-34} J-s$
Explanation :
The energy of an electron in $\;n^{th}\;$state of hydrozen atom is
$\varepsilon_{n}^{H}=-\large\frac{13.6}{n^2}\;eV$
Given that $\;\varepsilon _{n}^{H}=-3.4 eV \;,$ hence $\;n^2=\large\frac{-13.6}{-3.4}\;$ or n=2
According to $\;2^{nd}\;$ postulate of Bohr's theory the angular momentum of electron is
$L=\large\frac{n h}{2 \pi}=2 \times\large\frac{6.626\times10^{-34}}{2 \times 3.14}=2.11 \times 10^{-34} J-s$
