Alternate Solutions 
ramparts 20091007 14:30:21  I made a stupid mistake as well (albeit not the same one as kev and f4hy, I actually squared the denonimators whle forgetting to square the numerators, lol), but I was able to guess the right answer using this reasoning:
The answer can be no more than , so eliminate A, and (from the magnitudes of the coefficients) has to be greater than , so rule out C. D and E might be ruled out by those constraints, but more importantly, in a calculation like this there's no way you're going to get square roots in the denominator, you know the coefficients get squared.
So yes, requires some knowledge of quantum, but it works if you screw up the math ;)

I quickly did the calculation as you see above, then doing a little scan of the problem to make sure I hadn't missed anything, I saw the negative sign on and decided to subtract that portion instead, thus switching from the correct answer to the incorrect answer.

I made the same mistake.
