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.
