Expression of rms is : urms = √(3RT/M) ⇒ (u_rms (H_2 at 50 K))/(u_rms (O_2 at 800 K) ) = √((3R x 50)/2)/√((3R x 800)/32) = √(50/2 x 32/800) = 1

The formula for finding rms speed of molecules is given by square root of 3RT/M and R is constant and M for hydrogen is 2 and that for oxygen is 32 and temperatures are given in the ques,, u can find out the ratio it will gives u the answer c
