Momentum and Kinetic Energy

How it is possible to double the momentum of a body by increasing the kinetic energy four times?at the time what happen to mass?

Answer:

When we say, KE is increased, we mean to say by increasing speed alone unless otherwise specified.

Here mass remains constant.

Please note that the question says, KE of a body increased 4 times; which suggests that the body is the same and KE is increased by increasing the speed alone.
