Answer:

I make it #(B)#........

Explanation:

And to answer the question, we must calculate the molarity of of each solution with respect to chloride ions.

And #"number of moles"="concentration"xx"volume"#

For #(a):# there are #0.020*dm^3xx0.50*mol*dm^-3=0.01*mol#.

For #(b):# #0.060*dm^3xx0.20*mol*dm^-3xx"2 equiv"=0.024*mol#.

For #(c):# #0.070*dm^3xx0.30*mol*dm^-3=0.021*mol#.

For #(d):# THERE ARE NO CHLORIDE IONS IN SOLUTION. Why not?

Why did I double the quantity in #(b)#?
