let   \frac{x^{2}}{a^{2}}+\frac{y^{2}}{b^{2}}=1    (a<b)  is the equation of ellipse , focii (0,\pm 2)

Given : 2a = 4 => a = 2

e^{2}=1-\frac{a^{2}}{b^{2}}=> b^{2}e^{2}=b^{2}-a^{2}

4=b^{2}-4

8=b^{2}

\therefore equation of ellipse is

 \frac{x^{2}}{4}+\frac{y^{2}}{8}=1

=> it passes through (\sqrt2,2)

so, option 2 is correct.

 


Option 1)

(\sqrt{2},2)

 

 

 

Option 2)

(2,\sqrt{2})

Option 3)

(2,2\sqrt{2})

Option 4)

(1,2\sqrt{2})
