And what does that mean? It means that there is charge separation in the water molecule....the which we could represent as stackrel(""^+delta)H-stackrel(delta^-)O-stackrel(delta^+)H..and you must have seen this representation before...
$O {H}_{2}$ can this interact in an ion-dipole fashion with POSITIVELY charged ion....sometimes we like to invoke bonds between the oxygen donor and the metal cation...
And so your option is clear....${H}_{2} O \rightarrow N {a}^{+}$
