Young’s modulus of steel is twice that of brass. Two wires of the same length and of the same area of cross-section, one of steel and another of brass, are suspended from the same roof. If we want the lower ends of the wires to be at the same level, then the weights added to the steel and brass wires must be in the ratio of:

1. \(1:2\)

2. \(2:1\)

3. \(4:1\)

4. \(1:1\)

If the ratio of diameters, lengths and Young's modulus of steel and copper wires shown in the figure are \(p,\) \(q\) and \(s\) respectively, then the corresponding ratio of increase in their lengths would be:

1. | \(\frac{5 q}{\left(7 \mathrm{sp}^2\right)} \) | 2. | \(\frac{7 q}{\left(5 sp^2\right)} \) |

3. | \(\frac{2 q}{(5 s p)} \) | 4. | \(\frac{7 q}{(5 s p)}\) |
