Consider the atwood's machine. Find the accelerations of the masses

Well then, if you look at at the pulley at the left (assuming the tension in the string is T) you get 2T - T = 0*acceleration of the pulley, i.e 2T=T => T=0 so, technically their acceleration should be g

Are the pulleys massless?

Yes
