2 x 4 studs 16" on center. Door opening require a jack and king stud on each side with the jack supporting the header which is usually a double 2 x 6. A 20' clear span ceiling joist with no attic storage must be a 2 x 8.
If the door opening is not load bearing a double 2 x 4 is sufficient.
Do you have any more questions?
