(A) Initial MI = I
Angular speed $$\displaystyle\omega_{{{i}}}={800}{r}\pm={800}\times{60}\times{2}\pi$$ rad. / s
MI of second wheel = 2I
So final MI after coupling = 3I
Final angular speed = $$\displaystyle\omega_{{{f}}}$$
Angular momentum is conserved in the process. So, $$\displaystyle{\left|\omega_{{{i}}}={3}\right|}\omega_{{{f}}}$$
$$\displaystyle\omega_{{{f}}}=\frac{\omega_{{{i}}}}{{3}}={800}\times{60}\times\times{2}\frac{\pi}{{3}}$$
$$\displaystyle={1.005}\times{10}^{{{5}}}$$ rad. /s (or) 266.7 rpm
(B) Initial Rotational KE = 0.5 $$\displaystyle{\mid}{\left(\omega_{{{i}}}\right)}^{{{2}}}$$
Final Rotational K.E. = 0.5(3|) $$\displaystyle{\left(\omega_{{{f}}}\right)}^{{{2}}}$$
Fraction of the orginial rotational kinetic energy lostis
$$\displaystyle=\frac{{{\left({R}.{K}.{E}.\right)}_{{{i}}}-{\left({R}.{K}.{E}.\right)}_{{{i}}}}}{{\left({R}.{K}.{E}.\right)}_{{{i}}}}={0.667}$$
