    Is this a historical question? If so, and If I'm not mistaken, de Broglie considered only electrons when he came with his hypothesis.

    The correct answer is (d) All moving particles. He studied electrons because anything larger would have made the observation of the waves impossible.

    the answer is d . de broglies principle is applicable to each and every object. for eg cars and electron both have wave nature , but becoz of the smaller mass of the electron the wave nature is more prevalent in it.
