b-    The mass of a neutron is approximately 1,000 times the mass of an electron.

c-    The mass of a neutron is approximately 10,000 times the mass of an electron.

d-    The mass of a neutron is approximately 2,000 times the mass of an electron.

mass of neutron/mass of electron = 2*10-24/(9*10-28)

 

$${\frac{{\mathtt{2}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{{\mathtt{10}}}^{\left(-{\mathtt{24}}\right)}}{\left({\mathtt{9}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{{\mathtt{10}}}^{\left(-{\mathtt{28}}\right)}\right)}} = {\mathtt{2\,222.222\: \!222\: \!222\: \!222\: \!222\: \!2}}$$

 

so d is closest.
