Correct options are A) , B) and D)

, thus, more the momentum the particle smaller is the de-Broglie wavelength. In option A, the speed of the particles is same, thus, the heavier particle will have more momentum. in option B, it can be seen that the heavier particle will have more linear momentum. in option D, they have the same speed , thus, heavier particle will have more linear momentum.
