Actually, it must also be specified whether the ellipse also meets said line on the x axis also. Otherwise, there are infinite such ellipses with infinite different eccentricities.

Is the question incomplete ? The answer i have is \(\frac{2\sqrt{6}}{7}\)

Yes it seems so. All the ellipse of form \(\frac {x^2} {a^2}+\frac {y^2} {2^2}=1\) satisfy given condition.

The question itself doesn't have a diagram but i'll try posting it. I think the question is incomplete

@Karan Shekhawat there are many possibilities as Raghav told. One possibility which.any one would think that \(a=7\) and \(b=2\) and hence eccentricity=\(\frac{3\sqrt{5}}{7}\) but thats not the answer.
