Sol. (a) Correct : For greater solubility, hydration energy must be greater than lattice energy. (b) Correct : Greater lattice energy discourage dissolution of a salt. (c) Incorrect : When a salt dissolve, energy is required to break the lattice, which comes from hydration process. (d) Incorrect : Explained in (A).
