I know that the answer of the question below is D, but how do I get to that answer?

My guess would be to use current divider to find the current going through v0 then we can calculate v0 then divide by is.

When I do that I got a very complicated result...

My calculations for the current divider is to find the equivalent resistance in the circuit, which is:

R1R2/R1+R2 || R1R2/R1+R2

which is R1R2/2R1+2R2

Then after calculating the v0/is I got R1R2/2(R1+R2). This doesn't seem to match the answers above

is this approach correct so far?
