Step 1 of 2:-

Here we have to explain , which of the given objects has the smallest radius.

The options given are, 1.2 solar mass white dwarf, the event horizon of a 3 solar mass black hole and the event horizon of 10 solar mass black hole.

The white dwarf stars are formed after the death of a star whose mass is not sufficient to become a black hole. So, just after the death the star becomes a white dwarf. The mass of it is comparable to sun, but the size is comparable to earth.
