dear student,

Among given compounds, ethylene glycol ( ) is the most soluble in water. Ethylene glycol has two hydroxy groups both of which form hydrogen bonds with water. Greater is the number of hydrogen bonds, greater is the extent of hydrogen bonding and greater is the solubility in water.

thank you.

Ethylene glycol is most soluble in water. Because it has 2 -OH groups that can form H bonding with water. Hence more H bonding leads to more solubility in water.

Since 2 hydroxyl groups are present in ethylene glycol, it will form the maximum no. of hydrogen bonds with the water molecules and hence, will be more soluble as compared with others. So, we can conclude that the answer to this question is D. Ethylene glycol.
