Solution

The correct option is A Sodium salt
Sodium chloride, a salt of sodium (also known as rock salt), is formed mainly due to the evaporation of salty water (such as sea water) which contains dissolved NaCl ions.

Drying up of ancient seas and other salt water bodies is one of the main sources of rock salt.
