A radioactive decay follows the conservation of charge and the conservation of mass.
In an alpha decay a parents nuclei converts into daughter nuclei with the emission of the helium nuclei ( alpha particle ). The general reaction of an alpha decay is given below:
Z A X = Z 2 A 4 Y + 2 4 H e
here, X is the parent nuclei and Y is the daughter nuclei.
Taking above reaction into account the alpha decay of 93 241 A m will be: 93 241 A m = 91 237 N p + 2 4 H e
The daughter nuclei is 91 237 N p
Hence, option 5 is correct.
