As discussed in

if R=r -

P_{max}=frac{E^{2}}{4r}

- wherein

Power delivered will be maximum

 

 \rho=VI

I=\frac{\rho }{V_{B}}=\frac{500}{100}=5A

V_{R}=IR\:\:\:\:\:\Rightarrow (230-100)=5R

R=26\: \Omega


Option 1)

230 \Omega

This option is incorrect.

Option 2)

46 \Omega

This option is incorrect.

Option 3)

26 \Omega

This option is correct.
