Which one of the following about of an electron occupying the 1s orbital in a hydrogen atom is incorrect? (The Bohr radius is represented by a_{0})

(a) The probability density of finding the electron is maximum at the nucleus

(b) The electron can be found at a distance 2a_{0} from the nucleus

(c) The magnitude of the potential energy is double that if its kinetic energy on an average

(d) The total energy of the electron is maximum when it is at a distance a_{0} from the nucleus
