Solution

The correct option is C C6H5NO2
Kjeldahl’s method measures only nitrogen bound to organic components (proteins, amino acids, nucleic acids and ammonium in the sample.
This method is not suitable for compound containing nitrogen in azo and nitro group or in rings (quinoline, nitrate and nitrite etc.)
