Solution

The correct option is B non polar solvent
Since electrons are neither completely given nor taken but shared in a covalent bond, there is non-polarity on either of the atoms which means these compounds are nonpolar or less polar. Now as we all know, ‘Like dissolves like’, which means a polar compound will be dissolved in a polar solvent and a non-polar compound will get dissolved in a nonpolar solvent. So covalent compounds are dissolved in nonpolar solvents.
