Expert Answer:

Law of multiple proportions does not hold true for isoptopes. Because law multiple proportions states that when two elements combine to form two or more chemical compounds, then the masses of one of the elements which combine with a fixed mass of others, bear a simple ratio in one another. 
Here, in case of isotopes, Atmoic masses are different so, masses are not fixed and ratio is going to be different.
