(c)

Potential difference (V) = 1 V,

K.E. acquired = q V

=      1.6 × 10-19 x 1

=      1.6 × 10-19 joules

=      1 eV

If we accelerate an electron through a potential of 1 kV, it will gain 1 keV of energy. Now the proton has the same amount of charge as an electron. Hence it will also gain 1 keV of energy. The increased mass will mean the final velocity would be less.

Dear student 
 
ΔKE=qV=eV=e×1×1eV
Hope this will help 
Good Luck

Ans (c).
Proton has charge that is “+1e” and when a charge is accelerated through potential then it aquire kinetic energy whiich is equal to charge*potential difference.
       So kinetic energy of proton=charge on proton * potential difference
     => kinetic energy of proton= (+1e)*(1V)
     => kinetic energy of proton=1eV
