The highest critical temperature  T_{c}\propto \frac{a}{b}

                  A_{r} \Rightarrow T_{C}\propto \frac{1.3}{3.2}

                 N_{e}\Rightarrow T_{c}\propto \frac{0.2}{1.7}

                 K_{r}\Rightarrow T_{c}\propto \frac{5.1}{1.0}     (Maximum)

                X_{e}\Rightarrow T_{c}\propto \frac{4.1}{5.0}

                K_{r} is the answer


Option 1)

Kr

Option 2)

Ne

Option 3)

Xe

Option 4)

Ar
