Correct option is C)

: Draw the FBD :Given length of ladder is 5m. It is placed against the wall. Coefficient of friction is . Let mass of the ladder is .From the figure: for the vertical equilibrium   For horizontal equilibrium      The torque about point A is given by: , since \textbf{Step 2}:From equation and So, Thus option C is correct.
