Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

According to the Borh theory the radius of the hydrogen atom to the n state would be:

Rn = (n^2)*ao   ; where ao = 0.0529 x10^-9 m

So for n = 9 then we would have:

R9 = (9^2)*(0.0529 x 10^-9 m) = (81)*(0.0529 x10^-9 m) = 4.2849 x 10^-9 m

Final answer: R9 = 4.28 x 10^-9 m, so it's option A.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
