Answer : (c) $\;\large\frac{1}{2}$
Explanation :
When a charged particle of charge q , mass m enters perpendicularly to magnetic induction B of a magnetic field , it will experience a magnetic force F=$q\;(\overrightarrow{V}\times\overrightarrow{B})$
$=qVB sin 90=qVB$
That provide a centripetal acceleration $\;\large\frac{V^{2}}{r}$
$rVB=\large\frac{mV^2}{r} \quad \; mV=qBr$
The de-Broglie wavelength
$\large\frac{\lambda_{\alpha-particle}}{\lambda_{photon}}=\large\frac{q_{P} r_{P}}{q_{\alpha}r_{\alpha}}$
Since $\;\large\frac{r_{\alpha}}{r_{P}}=I\;$ and $\;\large\frac{q_{\alpha}}{q_{P}}=2$
