Dear student,

The cutoff wavelenth corresponds to the energy of electron incident on the atom.

Hence\dfrac{hc}{\lambda}=eV\implies \lambda=\dfrac{hc}{eV}

Fast moving electron will also have the same energy, correspoding to the same case.
Hencep=\sqrt{2meV}
Therefore de-broglie wavelength is\lambda_B=\dfrac{h}{p}=\dfrac{h}{\sqrt{2meV}}

Hence required ratio=\dfrac{\lambda_B}{\lambda}=\sqrt{\dfrac{eV}{2mc^2}}
