Answer : $\;2 \alpha \bigtriangleup t$
Explanation :
$I_{0} = \large\frac{2}{5} mr_{0}^2$
$I^{'} = \large\frac{2}{5} m\; [r_{0}^2 (1+\alpha \bigtriangleup t)^2]$
$= \large\frac{2}{5} mr_{0}^2\;[1 +2 \alpha \bigtriangleup t]$
$\bigtriangleup I = \large\frac{2}{5} mr_{0}^2 \;(2 \alpha \bigtriangleup t)$
$\large\frac{ \bigtriangleup I}{I_{0}} =2 \alpha \bigtriangleup t$
