For any point X on line P Q. As X tends to infinity, the path difference between waves from D1 and D2 tends to 0.
From this, we can say that Q corresponds to first minima with path difference = \cfrac{\lambda}{2}
Hence P corresponds to a path difference of \cfrac{3\lambda}{2}
Then we can calculate D_1P-D_2P = \cfrac{3\lambda}{2}
Solve for wavelength and then frequency(\approx 116 Hz).
Closest answer is option 4.


PS: Sorry for the delay in my reply as well. Got busy with college registration post vacation.
