Correct Answer - Option 3 : Iron

Concept:

Modulus of elasticity is also a measure of material's stiffness or resistance to elastic deformation. Elasticity is a property of an object or material indicating how it will restore it to its original shape after distortion.

Higher value of the Young modulus of metal indicated higher stiffness.

Material

Young’s modulus of elasticity

(in GPa)

Wood

13

Aluminium

70

Glass

70

Copper

110

Steel

210

Rubber 10
Iron 170
Nylon 2.7

Hence among the options given, Iron has the largest value of young's modulus.
