we have got two equations here:
1st eq. is-
l1 + e = v/4f.........(1)
2nd eq.is
l2 + e = 3v/4f........(2)
Apply (2) – (1)
l2 - l1 = 3v/4f – v/4f = 2v/4f = v/2f
delta(l2 - l1) / (l2 - l1) = delta(v) / v
delta(v) = 2f delta(l2 - l1) = 2f(deltal1 + deltal2) …......for maximum error
delta(v) = 2 x 512 x (0.1 + 0.1) = 2 x 512 x 0.2
delta(v) = 204.8 cm/s
Hence (c) is correct.

							Dear Student,
Please find below the solution to your problem.

we have got two equations here:
1steq. is-
l1 + e = v/4f.........(1)
2ndeq.is
l2 + e = 3v/4f........(2)
Apply (2) – (1)
l2-l1=3v/4f – v/4f = 2v/4f = v/2f
delta(l2-l1) / (l2-l1) = delta(v) / v
delta(v) = 2f delta(l2-l1) = 2f(deltal1+ deltal2) …......for maximum error
delta(v) = 2 x 512 x (0.1 + 0.1) = 2 x 512 x 0.2
delta(v) = 204.8 cm/s

Thanks and Regards
