A small mass attached to a string rotates on a frictionless table top as shown. If the tension on the string is increased by pulling the string causing the radius of the circular motion to decrease by a factor of 2, the kinetic energy of the mass will


(a) Increase by a factor of 4                                       (b) Decrease by a factor of 2

(c) Remain constant                                                   (d) Increase by a factor of 2
