I've started guiding you through the solution of your other posted problem. This attempt is really lame. Start by looking in your book and telling me what the FSR is.

Try looking for for the phrase free spectral range. Then look for a graph of the transmission through a Fabry Perot etalon, can you tell me how to draw the FSR on this graph?
