D

Solution

The correct option is C AlCl3
In Al2O3, the valency of aluminium is 3 and oxygen is 2.

Valency of chlorine is 1.
So, for chloride of aluminium:

Symbol: Al     Cl
Valency: 3       1

On interchanging the valencies of each element and writing them down as subscripts, we get the formula - AlCl3.
