$y^2=4ax$-----(i)

Vertex $=(0,0)$

$m= \tan \theta$

Hence equation of the chord is $y=(\tan \theta)x$

Put in (i) we have $\tan ^2 \theta (x^2)=4ax$

=> $x= \large\frac{4a}{\tan ^2 \theta}$

$y= \large\frac{4a}{\tan \theta}$

Length of the chord $=\sqrt {\bigg(\large\frac{4a}{\tan 2t} \bigg)^2+\bigg(\large\frac{4a}{\tan \theta}\bigg)^2}$

$\qquad= \large\frac{4a}{\tan ^2 \theta} $$ \sqrt {1+\tan ^2 \theta}$

$\qquad= \large\frac{4a \cos ^2 \theta}{\sin ^2t } \times \large\frac{1}{\cot \theta}$

$\qquad= \large\frac{4a \cos \theta}{\sin ^2 \theta}$

Hence A is the correct answer.
