Correct option is B)
Intial height of tree =5m Initial height of initids =2.5m i.e initials carved at the middle of the tree.
∴ after l0 years, each section of tree would have been grown in height, therefore the initials would still be carved at the centre of the tree after l0 years.
Height of tree after l0 years =15m Height of initials after l0 years =215m=7.5m
