Answer : (b) $\;\large\frac{3}{5}$
Explanation :
Total heat $\; \bigtriangleup Q = \bigtriangleup C_{p} \bigtriangleup T$
Internal energy change $\; \bigtriangleup u = n C_{v} \bigtriangleup T$
Therefore , Fraction of energy going to increase internal energy ---
$\large\frac{\bigtriangleup u} { \bigtriangleup Q} = \large\frac{C_{v}}{ \bigtriangleup C_{p} } = \large\frac{1}{r} =\large\frac{3}{5}$
(Since helium is monoatomic )
