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

In this question you have doubled the volume.

Increasing the volume leads to a decrease in pressure, when there is no temperature change indicated.

You also should assume that the system is airtight, so the final answer is not accurate.

So a decrease in pressure corresponds to a decreasing number of particle collisions.

The solution would be that the number of collisions is reduced by 1/2

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