Solution

The correct option is B cos1(25)

For equilibrium, the net torque about point A should be zero.

Now, the torque due mass m and 2m about A are,

τm=mgL2cosθ

τ2m=2mg(L2Lcosθ)

For equilibrium,

τmg=τ2mg

mgL2cosθ=2mg(L2Lcosθ)

52cosθ=1

θ=cos1(25)

Hence, option (B) is the correct answer.
