As we know that both rods are joined in series, so equivalent thermal conductivity will be K1​+K2​
Now, we know that
R=KAL​
So,
Kequivalent​2L​=K1​L​+K2​L​
Kequivalent​2L​=3L​+4L​
Kequivalent​=724​
Kequivalent​=3.43
Thus option A is correct.

When we talk about thermal conductivity we can set up same chronology with capacitance or parallel equivalent resistance logic

So same rule will follow for that

1/R = 1/R1 + 1/R2 + 1/R3 +...................

So you will get answer 6/5
