Expert Answer:

Yes, the answer is not correct, we apologize.

The kinetic energy of a charged particle in cyclotron will change if the speed of the particle changes, magnetic field always changes the direction of a charged particle and NOT it's speed.

Because F = q(vXB)

as we can see from the equation the force vector is perpendicular to the plane containing v and B, as per rules of cross product.
