# The binding energy per nucleon for the parent nucleus is E1 and that for the daughter nuclei is E2.ThenE2=2E1E1>E2E2>E1E1=2E2

A
E2>E1
B
E2=2E1
C
E1=2E2
D
E1>E2
Solution
Verified by Toppr

#### After decay, the daughter nuclei will be more stable hence binding energy per nucleon will be more than that of their parent nucleus.
