A 5% solution (by mass) of cane sugar in water has freezing point of 271 K and freezing point of pure water is 273.15 K. The freezing point of a 5% solution (by mass) of glucose in water is :
A. 271 K
B. 273.15
C. 269.07 K
D. 277.23 K.

For both the solution W_(B)andW_(A) are the same.
(DeltaT_(f(g)))/(DeltaT_(f(s)))=(M_(("suorse")))/(M_(("glucose")))
DeltaT_(f(g))=((342g mol^(-1)))/((182g mol^(-1)))xx215K=4.04 K
"f.p. of glucose solution"=(273.15-4.-4)
=269.11 K.
