```										Hi,

tushar der is smtng wrong with ur question.

Let us consider that v increase the length of the whole wire to 3/2 times of it original length ,

still the R wud become 9/4 R.IT can't be 4R in any case.

Consider length is increase to 3/2 times,then its cross section area will become 2/3 times of its original,

the resistance is proportional to length and inversly proportional to area ,

hence the new resistance wud b {(3/2L)/(2/3A)}=9/4*L/A = 2.25R.

So i request u to plz confirm ur qn & repost ur doubt.
