Best answer
Correct Answer - A
They will revolue about this centre of mass
`0 = 4m(-x)+m(d-x)`
They will same `omega`
`(K_(4m))/(K_(m))=((1)/(2)I_(4m)omega^(2))/((1)/(2)I_(m)omega^(2)) rArr (K_(4m))/(K_(m))=(I_(4m))/(I_(m))`
`(K_(4m))/(K_(m)) = ((1)/(2)(4m)(d//5)^(2))/((1)/(2)(m)(4d//5)^(2)) rArr (K_(4m))/(K_(m))=(1)/(4)`
