Solution

The correct option is B HCHO in ether
The Grignard reagent is highly reactive and in presence of water or in acidic medium, it quickly produces alkane by taking H+ from water or the acid. Its reaction is carried out in ether solvent and here HCHO in ether gives the desired product.
Hence, (b) is correct.
