D. m^36

E. m^64

$$∇(Δk)=m^2$$
Or,$$∇(k^{\frac{1}{3}})=m^2$$
Or, $$(k^{\frac{1}{3}})^{\frac{1}{2}}=m^2$$
Or, $$k^{\frac{1}{2}*\frac{1}{3}}=m^2$$
Or, $$k^{\frac{1}{6}}=m^2$$
Or,$$k=(m^2)^6=m^{12}$$

Ans. (C)

Best way to go about doing this problem is to substitute a value for $$m$$. Let $$m = 2$$

Therefore, we have to find the value of ∇(Δk) = $$m^2$$ or 4

$$4(2^2)$$ is the cube root of $$4*4*4 = 64(2^6)$$, which the square root of $$64*64 = 4096(2^{12})$$

Substituting the values in the answer options, we arrive at the value of k which is $$m^{12}$$ (Option C)
