It is given that $$v_{\mathrm{e}}$$ is escape velocity and $$\lambda<1$$. If air resistance is considered to be negligible, then the maximum height from the centre of earth, to which the body can go, will be :

(R : radius of earth)

A
$$\frac{\mathrm{R}}{1+\lambda^{2}}$$
B
$$\frac{R}{1-\lambda^{2}}$$
C
$$\frac{R}{1-\lambda}$$
D
$$\frac{\lambda^{2} \mathrm{R}}{1-\lambda^{2}}$$
