Best answer

Correct option: (c) 2.4 x 1021

Explanation:

Given that 

C2H2O4. 2H2O = 252 mg

One mole molecule of oxalic acid contains 2 mole of H2

So in 2 × 10–3 moles of oxalic acid amount of water will be = 2 × 2 × 10–3 = 4 × 10–3 mole 

So, No. of molecules of water of hydration = 4 × 10–3 × 6.023 × 1023 

= 24.08 × 1020 = 2.4 × 1021
