In the reaction
$Ca(OH)_2+H_3PO_4 \to CaHPO_4 +2H_2O$
two hydrogen atoms of $H_3PO_4$ are replaced, therefore the equivalent weight of $H_3PO_4$ is half of its molecular weight.
Molecular weight of $H_3PO_4 =(1 \times 3)+31+(4 \times 16)=98$
Equivalent weight $=\large\frac{98}{2}$$=49$
Hence a is the correct answer.
