Let the equation of ellipse be $\large\frac{x^2}{a^2}+\frac{y^2}{b^2}$$=1$

Here $ a > b$ because the directrix parallel to y axis.

$b^2=a^2 (1-e^2)$ with $e =\large\frac{1}{2}$

=> $b^2= \large\frac{3}{4} $$a^2$

But $\large \frac{a}{e}$$=4$

=> $a=2$

Required ellipse is $ \large\frac{x^2}{4}+\frac{y^2}{3}$$=1$

=> $3x^2+4y^2=12$

Hence B is the correct answer.
