the correct answer is(A)
Na is the limiting reagent because the stoichiometric amount required in the reaction is 2 moles of Na with one mole of Cl2. But 3 moles of Cl2 are given with 5 moles of Na i.e. 1 mole of Cl2 per 5/3=1.66 mole of Na. But the stoichiometric amount required of Na is 2. Hence, Na is a limiting reagent. Hence, 2 moles of Na gives 2 moles of NaCl. So, 5 moles of Na will give 5 moles of NaCl.
