As we learnt in

Motion of connected blocks over pulley -

Equation of motion for   m_{1}

F_{net}=T-m_{1}g=m_{1}a

Equation of Motion for   m_{2}

F_{net}=m_{2}g-T=m_{2}a

 

- wherein

a=\frac{[m_{2}-m_{1}\:]g}{m_{1}+m_{2}}

T=\frac{2m_{1}m_{2}\:g}{m_{1}+m_{2}}


 

 

 

 

\frac{a}{g}=\frac{(m_{1}-m_{2})}{(m_{1}+m_{2})}

 \therefore\; \; \frac{1}{8}=\frac{(m_{1}-m_{2})}{(m_{1}+m_{2})}   

or  \frac{m_{1}}{m_{2}}=\frac{9}{7}

Correct option is 2.

Option 2)

9 : 7

This is the correct option.

Option 3)
