Solution

## The correct option is D Doubly ionized lithiumRadius on nth Bohr's orbit is r=a0n2Z For the first orbit it is a0Z. Now a0 being constant here, only Z varies for all the different options. For minimum radius, Z has to be maximum. For Hydrogen atom Z= 1 For Deuterium atom Z=1 For singly ionized helium Z= 2 And for doubly ionized lithium Z= 3. So for doubly ionized lithium the radius will be minimum as its Z is maximum.
