Correct options are A) , C) and D)

In a  photoelectric effect, the maximum kinetic energy of the ejected electron is given by,  
Where is the wavelength of the incident photon, W is the work function of the metal. 
Also work function,  where is the threshold frequency of the metal. 
Thus, only option B is wrong.
