## Question

### Solution

Correct option is

23.8 MeV

Let us consider the nuclear reaction : Deuteron has 2 nucleons. So, binding energy of deuteron    has 4 nucleons. So, binding energy of is Thus, , in comparison to , has more binding energy. So, 23.8 MeV energy will be liberated in this process.
