Correct choice is (b) \frac{π}{6}
 
To explain: Given that, |\vec{a}|=2 \,and \,|\vec{b}|=\sqrt{3}
 
Also, \vec{a.} \,\vec{b}=4
 
The angle between two vectors is given by
 
cos⁡θ=\frac{|\vec{a}|.|\vec{b}|}{\vec{a}.\vec{b}}
 
∴cos⁡θ=\frac{2.\sqrt{3}}{4}=\frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}
 
∴θ=cos^{-1}⁡\frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}=\frac{π}{6}.
