First of all you should know that all Physics Qs are based on ideal conditions,so the momentum(linear) always remains conserved....

ie m1v1=m2v2

in this case

GUN                BULLET

m1=12kg        m2=25gm=>0.025kg=>(0.025*4)kg per sec

v1=x(let)m/s  v2=500m/s

since momentum is conserved

12*x=0.025*4*500

x=(2.5*4*5)/12

x=4.16667m/s

F=change in momentum,so

12*4.1667-0="GIVES YOU THE CORRECT ANSWER!!"
