Answer:

Would not 200 molecules of water be produced...?

Explanation:

We examine the stoichiometric equation to establish the stoichiometric equivalence...

#H_2(g) + 1/2O_2(g) rarr H_2O(l)#..

...and thus EACH equiv of dioxygen gas gives TWO equiv of water. Since you specify 100 molecules of dioxygen...200 molecules of water thus result... Agreed?
