    You must know the equations for stress and strain, and then stress/strain=YM.

    There is something missing in your question to find strain you need extension.However to find extension I can use hookes law , but the constant is not given.

    YM is the pressure required to stretch it by its own length, i.e. 2m. You cannot work that out.
