hello pushpa. consider the following excerpt:
The production of ethylene oxide by the catalytic vapor phase oxidation of ethylene with a molecular oxygen containing gas in the presence of a Silver catalyst is widely practiced on a commercial Scale.
in fact the above rxn is a famous one and also finds widespread industrial application!
this means that ethylene oxide is produced. however, ethylene oxide is also known as epoxyethane (IUPAC name).
hence option D is correct
kindly approve :)
