#### Answer:

Surely it is option $C .$?

#### Explanation:

Mass is a measure of the number of particles. Here you have $O$ atoms, and dioxygen, ${O}_{2}$, and ozone molecules, ${O}_{3}$ but each have the same mass by specification. There are thus equal numbers of atoms, massive particles.

Which sample has the LEAST number of molecules? This is a key point of understanding.
