Answer:

I would say #"option 1........"#

Explanation:

We know that #1*mol# contains #6.022xx10^23# individual sodium atoms, and has a mass of #22.99*g#.

And thus for #1.# there is a #2*g# mass of #Na#.

For #2.# there is a #22.99*g# mass of #Na#.

For #3.# there is a ..............................

#(3xx10^23*"sodium atoms")/(6.022xx10^23*"sodium atoms"*mol^-1)xx22.99*g*mol^-1# mass of #Na#, approx. #11.5*g#.

For #4.# there is a #8*g# mass of sodium............

And so, clearly,..................Capisce?
