Moles of Fe=$\large\frac{558.5}{55.85}$$=10$moles
Number of atoms in 558.5g of Fe=$10\times 6.023\times 10^{23}$
Mole of c=$\large\frac{60}{12}$$=5$
$\therefore$ Number of atoms in 60g (5mol) of c=$5\times 6.023\times 10^{23}$
$\therefore$ The option is (b) twice that in 60g carbon.
Hence (b) is the correct answer.
