The efficiency of a Carnot heat engine operating between absolute temperatures T1 and T2 (when, T1 > T2) is given by (T1 - T2)/T1. The co-efficient of performance (CO.P.) of a Carnot heat pump operating between T1 and T2 is given by

[A]. T1/(T1-T2)
[B]. T2/(T1-T2)
[C]. T1/T2
[D]. T2/T1

COP = heat transferred at lower temp/work done.
= T2/(T1-T2)
So option B is correct one.
