# Two masses m and M are attached with strings as shown. For the system to be in equilibrium we have (A) $\mathrm{tan\theta }=1+\frac{2\mathrm{M}}{\mathrm{m}}$          (B) $\mathrm{tan\theta }=1+\frac{2\mathrm{m}}{\mathrm{M}}$           (C) $\mathrm{tan\theta }=1+\frac{\mathrm{M}}{2\mathrm{m}}$         (D) $\mathrm{tan\theta }=1+\frac{\mathrm{m}}{2\mathrm{M}}$

Dear Student,

Firstly find the all the forces acts on a first junction,
resolve all the inclined force, mg act downward and Tand Tresolved.
we can write,

Free body diagram for mass M

so, option (a) is correct
