Solution

The correct option is A High hydration enthalpy
Elecrons gain enthalpy- when an electron is added to neutral gaseous atom to convert it into a negative ion, the enthalpy change accompanying the process
There are two factors that affect fluorine's oxidating power namelly hydration enthalpy and bond energy
Hydration enthalpy is the most important in making fluoring the strongest oxidising halogen
so answer is (a)
