I think the correct answer from the choices listed above is option A. If two atoms are isotopes of the same element, they have the same number of protons but will have different numbers of neutrons. For instance, carbon-12 and carbon-13. Both have the same six protons. But, the number of neutrons differs for the former it has 6 neutrons while the latter will have 7 neutrons.
