    For this question
    http://tinyurl.com/3bmkhg

    Followed is my working

    P1/T1=P2/T2
    T2=(T1/P1)*P2
    =(T1)*(P2/P1)
    =25 * 2
    =50

    But the answer is D. 323,
    may I know what is my problem?

    Yes, for the ideal gas law you should measure temperature in degrees kelvin. Convert C to K, solve the problem and convert K to C.
