Answer : (b) $\;2.5eV,9\times10^{14} Hz$
Explanation :
Since $\;V_{s}=2.5V , \quad \; K_{max}=eV_{s}$
So , $\;K_{max}=2.5 eV$
Energy of incident photon
$\varepsilon =\large\frac{12400}{1980}eV=6.26eV$
$h \nu_{th}=W=3.76\times1.6\times10^{-19}J$
$\nu_{th}=\large\frac{3.76\times1.6\times10^{-19}}{6.6\times10^{-34}} \approx 9.1\times10^{14} Hz\;.$
