Question

Sources 1 and 2 emit lights of different wavelengths whereas 3 and 4 emit lights of different intensities. The coherence

Solution

Correct option is

Can be obtained by using sources 3 and 4

Different wavelengths would correspond to different frequencies. Lights of different intensities can give coherence even if contrast is poor.
