Answer : (b) $\;\sqrt{\large\frac{K_{2} K_{1}}{(4K_{2}+K_{1})\;m}}$
Explanation :
Let us strech the spring x
Let the spring $\;K_{2}\;$ move by $\;x_{2}\;$ and $\;K_{1}\;$ move by $\;x_{1}\;$ then the mass (m) moves $\;2x_{1}+x_{2}=x$
As the system is in equilibrium forces are same and let the force be T
$2T=K_{1} x_{1} \quad \; T=K_{2}x_{2}$
$x_{1}=\large\frac{2T}{K_{1}} \quad \; x_{2}=\large\frac{T}{K_{2}}$
Therefore , $2x_{1}+x_{2}=x$
$w=\sqrt{\large\frac{K_{2} K_{1}}{(4K_{2}+K_{1})\;m}}$
