Option B is the right answer. The ratio of the focal length of the objective to that of an eye piece of telescopes is known as magnification.

Resolving power is defined as the ability of a microscope or telescope to distinguish two close together images as being separate. An example of resolving power is how well a telescope can show two stars as being separate stars.

That means C option is right.
