Given equations of planes are
2x-y+4z=5 \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ -(i)
and 
5x-2.5y+10z=6\\ 2.5(2x-y+4z)=6\\ 2x-y+4z= 2.4 \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ -(ii)
Now, from equation (i) and (ii) it is clear that given planes are parallel to each other 
\because \frac{a_1}{a_2}=\frac{b_1}{b_2}=\frac{c_1}{c_2}\Rightarrow \frac{2}{2}= \frac{-1}{-1}=\frac{4}{4}\Rightarrow 1=1=1
Therefore, the correct answer is (B)
