The correct option is D Nitric acid
On the basis of their molecular composition, acids are classified as oxy-acids and hydracids. Hydrochloric acid, Hydrobromic acid and Hydroiodic acid are hydracids as these acids do not contain oxygen atoms in their molecules. Nitric acid is an oxy-acid as this acid contains oxygen atoms in its molecular composition.
