Half life of A is same as mean life of B.Initially both substances have same no. of atoms. 1)A will decay at a faster rate than B initially 2)Both decay at the same rate always 3)Both decay at the same rate initially 4)B will decay at a faster rate than A initially

we know that half-life =(0.693)mean-life

half life of A=mean-life of B

half life of A=half life of B/0.693

therefore half life of A>half life of B

there fore A will decay faster than B

option 1 is correct
