Solution

The correct option is C salts
When an ionic compound is present in water,it dissociates to give a vanthotf factor which is greater than one,According to colligative properties lowering of freezing point increases when vanthoff factor is greater than one.So the freezing point is lowered to a large extent in seas to high content of salt.
