Solution

Atom A has mass number as 238 and atomic number 92.So number of protons = 92. Number of neutrons = 238-92=146Atom B has mass number as 235 and atomic number 92.So number of protons = 92. Number of neutrons = 235-92=143Number of protons of A and B =92Number of neutrons of A and B=146,143As the atomic number is same, they are isotopes.
