0.225 g of water.
Which of the following molecular formulae is consistent with these data?

It is not A because that molecular formula is not consistent with the data. You are to select the option with the molecular formula consistent with the data provided.

The answer is D because only D is consistent with the data.

Find the empirical formula then write the option which has a molecular formula consistent with these data.
