First I'm not an organic chemist. When I took organic it was all memory work. Now it is all mechanisms. So I think I remember it's 3o > 2o > 1o but I can't tell you why. Here is a site that may help you. http://www.masterorganicchemistry.com/2012/08/08/...

I found a web site that said average size was 6 micrometers diameter; 3 mm is 3 micrometers so if that was radius it would be about right.

Science
I don't know the answer to the question but there are no units on a. Isn't 3 mm and 0.003 m the same thing? So it can't be b or c and you KNOW it isn't 3m. So it must be 0.003 whatever unit you omitted.
