The problem is not that you are a 10th grade student. Unfortunately, there are too many physics experts on this site that have forgotten that they weren't born knowing all that stuff either. Too often I see simple questions get closed because they are simple. There is also a somewhat religious aversion to homework problems here. I see the point, and I too vote to close those question that simply dump a homework problem on us here. But, helping someone work thru a contrived problem, as long as they are trying within the apparent limits of their knowledge, should be part of the function of this site. However, all that is somewhat of a digression.
The problem in this particular case is that your question was crap. This is not about the content, but the way the question was written and the problem explained. Unfortunately, all too often teachers will give you leeway in formatting, presentation quality, clarity, and overall neatness. This is doing you a disservice, since the real world gives no such leeway.
You may think, what does it matter how it looks as long it says what it needs to say? It may be smudged pencil scrawls, but you can still see what it says. Wrong. Such things are annoying to read, and in some cases take extra time to decipher. You saved yourself a little trouble in writing, but that is at the expense of the reader. Think about what that says, which is "I'm more important than you are.". That's not a smart thing to say to someone you want to get a good grade from, a admissions dean you are trying to impress, someone you hope will hire you, or volunteers you are asking a favor from to help you with your problem on a web site.
Attitude and respect matter. A lot. Nobody wants to help some ingrate who can't even be bothered to write a comprehensible question. Screw that. There is absolutely no excuse for not getting the little things right, like capitalizing the first word of each sentence, capitalizing the word "I", one thought per sentence, and presenting information with the context of the reader in mind.
I just looked at your original question, and your problem was mostly a confused and very poorly thought out presentation of the question. Here is your question interspresed with my thoughts as I'm reading it:
In the question,
Huh? What question. No question has been previously introduced.
a block having mass M is suspended from a fixed support using a wire of length L.
OK, I think I can form a mental picture of this.
Due to the mass M, the an elongation of l is produced in the wire.
"The an"? Really? You think so little of us that you can't even be bothered to proofread what you wrote once?
"Elongation is produced" is awkward and leaves confusion. Is l the additional length the wire is stretched after M is supsended from it compared to its unstretched length? But if so, how does that reconcile with you stating earlier that the length was L. Is L before or after M is suspended?
Now, this mass M is removed,
Now I'm picturing a wire dangling from something.
and a pulley is suspended using the same wire. Assume the mass of the pulley to be negligible. Now two blocks of mass M (M is the same mass as in the first case) are suspended on opposite ends of the pulley. What will be the elongation of the wire in this case?
I think I sortof see this.
Options: A. 4l B. 2l C. l D. l/2
Huh? Oh, these are apparently choices of a multiple choice answer labeled A-D. That was confusing. That would have been much clearer in tabular form.
I have no idea about mechanical advantage and its usage to solve such problems,
What does mechanical advantage have to do with anything? That was never mentioned in the problem and appears to be irrelevant.
nor have I done anything related to pulleys.
So let me get this straight. This question clearly contains a pulley, but yet this guy has done nothing with pulleys!? He hasn't even bothered to look up the basics or read the chapter in his book before asking the question? Does he need us to change his diaper and burp him too? If he'd said the book says xxx, but I don't see how to apply that here because yyy, I'd be all over this trying to help him.
I don't know how to calculate the total mass of the pulley and masses system.
OK, but what has this guy done to try to figure it out? I can't tell what specifically he is stuck on to try to help him past the mental block or misconception. I'm happy to help someone trying to learn, but this ingrate just wants the answer and hasn't even tried to figure anything out himself.
This question is from a competitive test
How on earth is that relevant? Why am I supposed to give a crap where this question came from? Is this supposed to give his question higher priority? Oh, it's from a competitive test (as apposed to what, a uncompetetive test?), so we'll hop to it and get right on that. Yeah, right.
So let's see, confusing writing, no diagram when it is obvious that would be useful, hasn't shown any work, and arrogant attitude. Screw this. Voting to close on account of just being homework dumped on us, and downvoting for good measure as a kick in the butt on the way out the door.
You had one chance to make your first impression, and you blew it by being lazy, sloppy, and therefore arrogant. The question as it stands now (I don't remember seeing the original) is actually somewhat reasonable. If I came across that on its own, I'd probably try to answer. However, now that the history has been pointed out, I don't feel motivated to spend my free time on this particular question. I know the SE system was recently changed so that questions are now "on hold" instead of "closed" initially. But, that's a bunch of PC crap I don't agree with. It makes it seem OK to make a mess first and then be allowed to fix it later. Not on my free time.
Yes, I could vote to reopen it, and it probably deserves it according to the SE rules, but it's my vote and I'm not going to. You need to be taught a lesson that respect, carefully thinking out what you want to say, presentation quality, and attention to detail matter. You seem to think proper writing is something that only applies in English class. Wrong. Not on my free time.
