1. 316 Hz

2. 318 Hz

3. 319 Hz

4. 314 Hz

A set of $$20$$ tuning forks is arranged in a series of increasing frequencies. If each fork gives $$4$$ beats with respect to the preceding fork and the frequency of the last fork is twice the frequency of the first, then the frequency of the last fork is:
1. $$152$$ Hz
2. $$234$$ Hz
3. $$134$$ Hz
4. $$144$$ Hz
