Best answer

Molecular mass of sulphur molecules (S8

= 32 × 8 = 256 gm 

Molecular mass of glucose (C6H12O6

=(6 × 12) +( 1 × 12) +( 6 × 16) 

= 72 + 12 + 96=180 

Weight of 10 moles of S8 =10 × 256 = 2560 

Weight of 5 moles of glucose = 5 × 180 = 900 

Therefore, 10 moles of sulphur would weigh more.
