Two wires \(A\) and \(B\) are made of same material. The wire \(A\) has a length \(L\) and diameter \(r\) while the wire \(B\) has a length \(2L\) and diameter \(r/2.\) If the two wires are stretched by the same force, the elongation in \(A\) divided by the elongation in \(B\) is:
1. \(\frac{1}{8}\)
2. \(\frac{1}{4}\)
3. \(4\)
4. \(8\)
